Belbury Poly From an Ancient Star (Ghost Box)

 

The fourth outing for Belbury Polv finds Ghost Box co-founder Jim Jupp musing on familiar themes. Lovecraft’s fascination for the uncanny and von Daniken’s belief in extraterrestrial intelligences are both referenced in the accompanying booklet. These concepts run through the album, filtered through an innocent Anglo Saxon eccentricity, and channeled through a panoply of vintage analogue equipment. The result as ever is mesmerising.
