The debut album by the Electric Penguins, "Goodbye From The Electric Penguins" was a simple idea: to make a modern record using only 70's instruments / sounds. No fancy programming, no surround sound, no cut'n'paste just three guys in a studio doing it old skool with Moogs, Mellotrons, Farfisa organs & guitars.

The end result is an impressive blend of melodic invention & musicianship apart from a basic step-sequencer & mono drum box, all instruments were played live.

From the opening "Gelb" with it's piano-in-an-empty-room vibe to the closer "Too Far" with an aching vocal reminiscent of Sigur Ross, G.F.T.E.P. is a seamless musical tour de force which will be essential listening for anyone who is into Eno, Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Sigur Ross, Flaming Lips etc.
