Officer! is either Mick Hobbs (The Work, Family Fodder, Half Japanese) alone or Mick Hobbs with friends. Ossification' is like an amazing party held at this heat's cold storage studio, with friends like Felix Fiedorowicz, Tom Cora, Tim Hodgkinson, Bill Gilonis, Zeena Parkins,Patick Q & Catherine Jauniaux. The output of this party resulted in becoming one of the most unusual, pleasurable & character-filled "pop" records one has heard. Fourteen songs that contain the spirit of pop, rock, classical, medieval, avant garde, R.I.O., The Work, FamilyFodder, This Heat, Look de Bouk, Legendary Pink Dots, Henry Cow & more. 'Ossification' is a timeless anomaly in the history of recorded music. (knockemdeadrecords.com)
