Reviews:

"Dislocation Dance were among those Manchester pioneers who had listened to disco, to funk and maybe to African dance bands, and who really couldn't see the point of going along with the dreary nihilism of punk, instead jamming out some spooky jazz in a post be-bop kind of way. And at 27 tracks you can't argue about fair rations." (Whisperin' & Hollerin', 02/2006)

"Best port of entry into Dislocation Dance is Stereolab. There's the same flighty, monotone female vocal and percolating Euro-manticism, drawing on Latin and Parisian rhythms. Not at all dislocated but smooth, bubbly and serene. Almost Cardigans-esque in fact" (Q Magazine, 09/1999)

"Plenty of gems, taking simple pop songs and layering them with intricate jazz overtures is what these guys did best" (Exclaim!, 04/2006)

"This is ratty, slipshod soul - the real mutant disco that lies somewhere between the juicy ripeness of Out Come the Freaks and the desiccation of Death Disco. Northern Soul for Southern soles. Locate this disc and slip your spine before the lateral drinking process prevails. The penultimate party record" (NME, 08/1981)

"Dislocation Dance are the best band in Manchester" (Sounds, 03/1982)

"Beautifully crafted pop songs" (Masterbag, 05/1982)

"This is a record of rare sparkle" (NME, 03/1982)

"Excellent! It's about time Dislocation Dance were acknowledged" (Record Mirror, 06/1982)

"Witty, intelligent and provocative" (City Limits, 11/1981)

"Jam in the doughnut of life" (NME, 03/1982)
