"Spellbinding dark meditations." - Arthur Magazine
"Simon Finn's 1970 masterpiece Pass the Distance is narcoleptic and nightmarish made even freakier by multi-instrumentalist David Toop's strange accompaniment. One of the most intriguing, dark folk albums ever released. Finn's legacy looms large over the music of contemporary folk revivalists and experimenters like Richard Youngs and Devendra Banhart." - Other Music

NO NECK BLUES BAND
"One of the most enigmatic and defiantly anti-commercial groups to emerge from the New York loft scene during the '90s, NNCK (as the group is often abbreviated) membership is in a state of near-constant flux. Incorporating elements of folk, drone, psychedelia, free jazz, noise, and just about everything else, NNCK has nevertheless carved out a distinctive sound. The collective has also made a name for itself through its live performances. In early 1999, NNCK toured with guitar legend John Fahey, who dubbed them his favorite new band." - All Music Guide
