They Worshipped Cats by Les Big Byrd (A Records)

Overall this is an album that feels like it has its roots in the 80s with all of the things that dates so much of 80s music these days stripped out. Then add in a healthy dose of Spiritualized, and you begin to get the idea. It is more electronica than guitar-based rock, more Krautrock than space-rock, more realistic than abstract, and more groovy than dissonant. In short it is a great psych album which I look forward to dancing to again and again. Finally, a word on the cover; which is a brilliant picture of a Jesus figure destroying 50s spaceships with laser beams coming out of his eyes. What a fantastic image intimating that Les Big Byrd have come to save us:
