'Mo - The Demon' was recorded at Leeds College of Music between November 2017 and February 2018. The basis of the album was to record an imaginary soundtrack to the Shaw Brothers bat shit psychedicrazy Kung Fu horror 'The Boxer's Omen' aka 'MO' or 'Demon'. The story is an everyday one. After a Hong Kong kick boxer is paralysed by a cheating Thai competitor, his mobster brother vows revenge and journeys to Thailand for a duel. Along the way, our hero is met by bizarre visions, entered into a Buddhist monastery, and begins a quest to save the soul of a deceased monk (his twin brother in a past life) who died at the hands of a powerful black magician. We've all been there.

However the movie descends into a kind of spiritual Jodorowsky mushroom fest that is completely deranged and is therefore one of those perfect midnight movies. Then, invited back in February at LCM, the band decided to record 2 stand alone pieces, 'Spring Snow' and 'Jetavina Grove' and bring all their space rock elements and psych raga back into the fray. Throw in some super cool Korean vocals courtesy of Bomi Seo of Tirikiliatops and run the guitars through a harmonizer H910 (as used by Visconti on 'Low' an 'Heroes') and it's the perfect swansong to their last 14 years of playing live and recording together.

Limited to 400 copies on translucent violet coloured vinyl, house in a sleeve with mind bending artwork.
