Early recordings were a krautrock-influenced blend of rhythmic guitar, keyboards and percussion, with Cuckston’s eerie vocals and lyrics dealing with depression, loneliness and the dark side of childhood. A trumpeter (credited only as “the Verdigris Horn”) played on several tracks, including the quarter-hour In Dreams You Too Can Fly, on debut album “The Stars Are So Big…”.
