THE IMAJINARY FRIENDS are a somewhat mysterious collective. They released their debut album "Lunchtime In Infinity" on the mighty Bomp label and in their time have been known to contain ex-SWERVEDRIVER and BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE members amongst their numbers. Fitting perfectly into Space Age ethos, they create a bizarre world of electronic experimentalism coupled with a gnawing sense of tension that often explodes into an overdriven chaos. Throughout their five tracks on this album, they cram idea after idea into their work, discordant and intoxicating revelling in their wanton refusal to accept anything close to the ordinary. Take "Cheap Thrills", all crackled sample loops and lilting pianos - disturbing yet somehow deeply affecting the sound of a burned out life set to an insane backing track. Or "Syndrome" - an explosive breakbeat fuelled affair which rips out at you with a breath-taking force. THE IMAJINARY FRIENDS know the power of going just that bit further than most, and here they do it so well that it hurts. There can be no doubt that THE IMAJINARY FRIENDS have so much to offer to us all and this album exemplifies all that is sublime about this genre, encompassing a million sounds and a million ideas and leaving us all transfixed by both its beauty and it’s wild insanity. Imajinary or not, these friends have produced an album of rare splendour and an album which should show the world that the art of pushing boundaries is far from dead.
