Debut album of this trio (Gordon Anderson, John Maclean and Robin Jones) from Fife, Scotland.
As reviewed by Observer Music Monthly: "Astronomy for Dogs is jammed with as many ideas as there are stars in the sky, all colliding like asteroids [...] Although seeming to be a nonsense phrase, Astronomy for Dogs is a trope describing the source of [Gordon] Brown's personal cosmology. Sirius, the 'dog star' was said to have signaled the birth of Christ, and Anderson has pointed out that the coast of Fife, from where he hails, resembles the head of a dog, ears pricked up, nose pointing into the North Sea. The search for earthly love as spiritual salvation emerges as his main theme, its loss procuring a crisis of almost existential proportions; the stuff of everyday pop songs. The treatment it's given here is anything but traditional."
