‘In an increasingly uniform world where the arts are dominated by safe, nice but crushingly boring careerists and corporate lackeys Paul Vickers and the Leg are a blast of dangerous, refreshing, exciting, eccentricity.’ – Best Tuna

‘…hugely musically impressive even as it does a good impression of demented whimsy.’ – The Scotsman

‘…wonderfully crafted with the intention of creating a joyous and messy yet deliberate collection.’ – Is This Music?
