  • Reviews of the release

    For all of the "prog/fusion lovers" out there: this is not Premiata Forneria Marconi, the famous bestseller of italian fusion-prog rock italian combo (together with Demetrio Stratos' Area) from the seventies, PFM stands for Poor Father Material. The music is even more different, Myk Thomas could be filed under "ambient music", sometimes the keyboards reminded me of the best works recorded by mr. Eno, but this' not another "music for airport wonnabe". While the first track sounds really "old school" ambiet, "Prophet making" owns much more to movie soundtracks and to minimalism while the keyboards at times sounds like they've been stolen by some records came out on Warp during the Eighties. But mr. Thomas probably loves being heterogeneous and the final track is again different, this time his "calm and rural" (?!?) soundtrack get fused with "shoegaze" music and its like hearing Swerverdrive or Bark Psychosis diluted into an "empyreal-echo". This tracks should be nothing but an extract from an album from 2000, sincerely I can't imagine if in the economy of a long release it could be boring, but on a 3" mcd it's really good (damn I'd like to listen to the whole record). If ambient and shoegaze for you mean something I think you will appreciate this 3"mcd.

    Quite simple and effective ambient music, in the best Eno tradition

    Vital Weekly

    'My Favourite Memory' mixes a serene electronic soundscape with what sounds like a faulty telephone exchange as noise levels swell and relent in pleasing fashion. With nods to Eno and Kraftwerk, this is worthwhile music ready-made for the cinema and small screen.

    'Pre FM Tracks'. Reminiscent on the 10 minute opener of Harold Budd & Brian Eno, a beatless Hermann & Kleine, William Orbit's neo classical synth excursions, Vangelis & erm freakin' John Michelle Jar. track 2's a winner, soft twinkling keys & guitar samples over a relaxing cyclic refrain overlaid with some alienated but soft synth. See Yellow 6 & July Skies. Even finer is final tune 'My Favourite Memory', a gurgling space rock beauty, like Windy & Carl stuck in a malfunctioning telephone receiver. Classy & well realised stuff!!!
