"The 13 songs are drawn from across Ayers' career... with the band adding fresh impetus to his ever-appealing mixture of droll observations, quizzical musings and dreamy romanticism. A good night out for both the commited and curious."

Q March 2000


''Pleased with the success of a previous casual collaboration, when his opening act The Wizards of Twiddly had joined him onstage for a couple of numbers, Kevin Ayers started touring with the band intermittently for a year. TURN THE LIGHTS DOWN! captures one of these dates, at the Waterman's Arts Centre in London, for posterity.

Guitarist Carl Bowry and his colleagues lend an added dimension to such Ayers favorites as "Didn't Feel Lonely 'Till I Thought of You," "Lady Rachel," and "Why Are We Sleeping?" The two-piece brass section gives "Am I Really Marcel?" and "May I?" a decidedly woozy Salvation Army feel. Crank up the volume, and LIGHTS serves as a creative highlight of Ayers' low-profile '90s career.''
