A manifesto against modern life’s banality
 And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Avant Pop

This amusingly titled album draws together People In The Sky’s friends and family for a superior trip through, as they say, avant pop.

The label that brought Friendly Fires to wider attention (cheers for that), People In The Sky here unveil their manifesto against modern life’s banality with fifteen exotic tracks. Friendly Fires’ ‘On Board’ appears remixed by Nightmoves, Warp’s Bibio remixes Wax Stag’s ‘Folk Rock’, Architeq’s ‘Sleeping Bear Lament’ is subjected to a James Pants makeover, while Richard Norris’ Time And Space Machine contribute ‘Children Of The Sun’.
