Parlour is described as follows (we just couldn't find anything more colorful that this): “What began in the mid-90s as the one-man multi-instrumental sound experiments of Crain founder Tim Furnish has now morphed into a thrilling 7- headed beast that spits out adrenaline-steeped jams like a dragon spits fire. Equally indebted to the driving rhythms of the late 70's German underground, the melodic guitar skree of Sonic Youth and the aquatic explorations of Jaques Cousteau documentaries, Parlour are a fresh burst of nervous energy and ambitious precision. “
