Music: The Black Hole by Misty's Big Adventure

Misty's Big Adventure are a curious Birmingham band based around one Grandmaster Gareth. At full power they number nine and make an avalanche of noise that recalls Madness and Talking Heads collaborating at an anarchic, but wildly enjoyable party.

Most songs have a strong ska base but the offbeat lyrics and repeated musical phrases recall the best of 80s art rock. She Fills The Spaces has a shimmering and ambiguous depth while Never Stops Never Sleeps Never Rests is a full blown nonsense stop. Whether you feel like moving you body or not, this music demands it and there is even something for the brain to chew on too.
