Featuring Tim Hodgkinson (Henry Cow, The Work) on Hawaiian laptop noisy guitar and keyboards, Mick Hobbs (Family Fodder, The Work, Officer!) on bass and Andy Wake (Unrest, Work & Play) on drums, The Momes were an unique power trio with an abrasive sound channelling post-punk, psych-prog and avant-rock.

'Spiralling' is their sole album, recorded at This Heat's Cold Storage studio by Charles Bullen (This Heat, Lifetones) and originally released in 1989 on the Woof label (operated by Tim Hodgkinson and Bill Gilonis).

First ever vinyl reissue of this lost gem, recommended to fans of THIS HEAT, WIRE, SONIC YOUTH, FAUST, AMON D††L II, CAN, MX-80 SOUND, MISSION OF BURMA...

Includes a bonus 7" with two tracks taken from the album sessions (originally released only on CD as bonus tracks). Digital download also includes a previously unreleased bonus track from the same album sessions.

'They mix a kind of driving post-punk rock-lurch with beautiful lyrics, lovely Trout Mask guitar moments and plenty of twisted art-rock details' - Byron Coley
