Bewildered, blowing hard and sopping wet right through come Brigadier Ambrose, covered from head to toe in increasingly sparse layers of tar, flour and feathers and shouting very, very loudly.

'Buoyancy Aids' is their new single, a sloping, slackersome, bonafide INDIE SMASH augmented by a Robert Fripp excuse and brought back down to lovely earth with a bingo organ. And it's less than 3 minutes long.

Continuing to furrow a familiar brow, 'Buoyancy Aids' waves at Syd Barrett and Gruff Rhys before going for a hearty lunch with Hattie Jacques. Carry on, Brigadier Ambrose, carry on.

Brigadier Ambrose's last 6 singles have featured airplay via BBC Introducing, BBC Radio One, BBC Radio Two or BBC 6 Music.
