Latest music reviews: black sheep, yellow swans and more

Kiss my sweet apocalypse, Black Sheep.
Black Sheep is an anarcho psychedelic outfit fronted by the always interesting Julian Cope, and an assortment of other bearded fellows. This double disc set is a collection of tunes recorded in honour of various historical rabble rousers backed with a steely leftist agenda and a damn fine sprawling escapist sound. As with every two disc set not everything works, there’s some tracks that get lost amongst all the somewhat drug fuelled themes, but overall it’s a triumphant inspiring listen. Definitely not for anyone who isn’t enthused about experimental music, but for the curious and crusaders it’s a fine choice (Craig)
