about

‘We fancied going somewhere different this time ’…And so they did. Previously no strangers to changing gears radically mid track when a groove screamed out for it, Skeewiff have certainly excelled themselves this time.

‘Skeewiff In Wonderland’ is a multi sectional, genre hopping, beat heavy remix of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice In Wonderland’ that leaves your ears and senses vibrating with the very essence of sonic invention.

An elegiac orchestra and soaring beats are interspersed with glitchy psychedelia and moody jazz on the introductory ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’.

The cut and paste cinerama that is twisted and transported via 5 dimensions throughout the album is perfectly encapsulated on this thrilling soundtrack to our departure.

An infectious leslie organ and gleeful acoustic guitar propel the infectious ode to the novel's haphazard Dodo race - ‘A Caucus. A victorian string melody and incongruous slide guitar swell to complete the joyously deranged atmosphere.

On ‘Pig And Pepper’, Skeewiff serve up a slice of the 60’s cool that infected their hit collaboration with Vanessa Contenay-Quinones ‘Made In France’ with the kind of retro verve we know and love. ‘Advice From A Caterpillar’ adds to the increasingly lysergic atmosphere - a sitar laden jazzy groove providing a scintillating backdrop for funk guitar and soulful saxophone before Bollywood beats and growly synths arrive to remind us that nothing here is as it seems.

The crunk groove of ‘Who Stole The Tarts’ mutates a 30’s inspired Flapper dance into something defying explanation - jazz trumpet and piercing synths recreate the bawdiness of the legal system mocking 11th chapter and ‘Skee’s Evidence’ draws proceedings to a close in typically ‘Wiffed’ out fashion. Intertwining wah wah guitar and baffled trumpet lead the charge before the coda of ‘Down The Rabbithole’ reappears, a door bangs shut and a disturbing muffled chuckle echoes into the silence...

Curiouser and curiouser…
