”Han and Terrie share a giddy playfulness and the feeling of performing a crazy little dance next to a ravine. That old school drum kit and irreparable guitar are not just instruments, but tools to kick-start your imagination and they rattle, scrape, howl, screech, squeak and rumble incessantly. It is like a game of musical hopscotch: sometimes there is a swift win, sometimes it is unclear until the very end who will come out on top, and occasionally the game will be disbanded halfway through. They are messing with expectations and conventions,
always with some mischief and a grin, challenging you to do something about it.” — Guy Peters.
