"Musically Poot and Adcock craft rickety lo-fi symphonies that feel like they’re about to collapse on their jittering lolly pop legs. But this is part of the charm. We didn’t come here for pristine melodies and killer rhythms. No, we wanted to be entertained while being slightly perplexed. And perplexed we are. There is a section near the end of the first side when Honkeyzontal Picnic sound like if Salad Fingers was a Soundcloud rapper. ‘Facing Charges as a Sport’ is a fascinating album that demands relistens. After each listens, I think I have a better handle on it, but when I try and explain it all my conclusions fall from my mind like sand through an egg timer"

Nick Roseblade for Vital Weekly

"A lockdown classic of sorts as accompaniment for those of us who are struggling to make sense of the world. For nothing here makes any sense. We get random electronica and homely domesticity; squirts and squeals, cassette cuts, squeaky doors, kitchen sounds, sweeping up sounds, toy pianos and thumped tupperware, smoke alarms and whistles. Surreal absurdism thats a Northern Fripp, Fripp and Giles meets Suicide meets Kagel meets Joincey during a lockdown in Park Hill Flats where they wrote songs while banana peel scrapings dried out in the oven"
