Italian Online Review

Translation is a little strange in places, but you get the idea!

We can not speak for the group Made Up Tuesdays … Let’s say it is an “experiment project” was born and started to Cornwall, in Britain in January 2008, by multi-instrumentalists Matt Chapman and Mark Horrell, who along with other friends and associates (which vary from time to time), occasionally traipse into a recording studio, meet, begin to play and record everything. Nothing is written, or carried out, almost everything is captured in one take. And they put out albums like this “The God Particle, spontaneous, hypnotic, attractive, with a set of tracks from psychedelic-progressive jam. For the most part seems to blur their music between the ’60s and ’70s, with electric guitars sometimes sour, sometimes weeping, with keyboards to create scenarios sound bizarre, with aid of tools of various kinds … The CD is long, almost an hour and twenty minutes, but can never get tired and is enjoyable in every aspect. It brings to mind some sound experiments from many years ago, in particular those of cosmic German couriers, or Hawkwind, or visions of the American psychedelic scene. But they also warn ideas closer to modern times, as shown by certain repetitions care to Ozric Tentacles, the circumstances where there is a trend a bit sluggish ‘à la Radiohead, or atmospheres that appear to come from the scene of Bristol and Portishead. Entirely instrumental, all songs flow path that is a pleasure, even with some leaders of great beauty and intensity, as the eighth track “Fistfull of Trumpets”, which features the wonderful presence of the trumpet. The rhythms are never too short, which contributes to this dreamlike and hallucinatory. Between past and modernity, Made Up Tuesdays show their love for music and try to convey their passion in this simple way, live, but damn effective. “The God particle” is an album that contains many good ideas and I admit that for me to discover Made Up Tuesdays was really a great pleasure. We also do a straight: on their site you can listen to good music coming from their many recordings …

The God Particle

Review by Tarkus Magazine (extract)

The Made Up Tuesdays (tMUT) is a long lasting project that Angel (formerly Gary) Walker recently joined and this is actually much more interesting. The concept here is a straightforward instrumental music bordering neo-psychedelia/post-rock, with some superficial influences from both the older days of Kraut (La Düsseldorf, Embryo, Release Orchestra) and later stuff like Bark Psychosis and Mogwai. Most of the material, however, differs from the somewhat stringent strategy in the setup of the two latter bands, as tMUT primarily concerns the art of suggestion and a meticulous painting of frail atmospheric images. The playing is also loose and comfortable rather than costly, with an instrumentation which embraces woodwind and brass (sax, trumpet) in addition to the core of (el-guitar/bass/drums/organ, analog synth and electric piano), and the sketch-like progress of the songs have a light touch of cinematic jazz and primitive electronica. Music that is seemingly simple in design and delivery, but not necessarily in the plan and effect.
