"This is didgeridoo(played by consumate circular breather Stephen Kent of "Trance Mission"),drums (and other percussion instruments) and electronic atmospheres and "FX" as filtered through an ethnoambient "Dream Time" sensability.Pounding walls of rhythm, vast caverns of sound, thunder and wind and the dark spaces behind your eyes are laid down on these tracks. Released in 1988 (or is it '92? two dates on the disc) on the "City of Tribes" label, this is pure, trance inducing ambient groove."
Lights In A Fat City - 'Somewhere' (City Of Tribes)

"Almost as mind-blowingly outstanding as their 'Memory Ground' effort (see my review). Simply more 'new age'-like ambient trance groove sounds from LIAFC here to thoroughly take in. Tunes here that more than made me float up (er,I mean sit up) and take notice were "When I Go Up (I Feel Like Shouting)", the experimental "Valley Of The Winds","Zzzzzp" and the thirteen-minute atmospheric piece "Guboo".Don't think I've EVER seen an ensemble make SUCH great use of a didgeridoo before.An absolute should-have."

"the curiously-monikered Lights In A Fat City have a unique sound that is an amalgamation of deep textures, rich drones (thanks to the expansive sound of the didgerdoo, which is a main element to their style), and a fondness for tribal atmospheres. it comes across sounding like aboriginal music that has been given an electronic treatment. this could have been a disasterous mixture, as trillions of tasteless "new age world music" compilations have taught us, but this group succeeds on forming a union between the primitive and the technologically advanced, due to, what seems like, a large amount of respect for the people's whose sound they are plundering. there is the inclusion of a few spoken word samples which seem horribly out of place. but they are thankfully scant in these proceedings and i think i can overlook their misguided presence. most of these songs are based around the ethnic percussion and primal drumming; layered with the woozy computer effects and the didgerdoo's deep, resonant hum, Lights In A Fat City have created an interesting album full of intrigue and mystery."
