“This album is the culmination of months of fevered work in Jarrod’s “Pig View” studio beavering away on dangerous vintage machinery (including his prized Mellotron M400), to bring Prog Fans a highly detailed but accessible and colourful music, mixing prog, jazz, and folk genres with an anarchic post-­-punk strand and sensibility.

The emergence of The Worm from the Apple of Invention is already causing ripples in the fabric of the music world, with plays on BBC6 Music¹s Stuart Maconie’s FreakZone and other radio stations worldwide. Fans of anarcho-jazz-punk psychedelic prog the world over will be able join in the fun now the album is for sale via Burning Shed for physical CD¹s and Bandcamp for digital downloads.”
