Info

Now We Have Light was the third Sanguine Hum album, following on from the acclaimed albums Diving Bell and the Weight of the World. A full-blown double CD concept album, the band had been working on this music for over a decade and its roots go back to the earliest days of Antique Seeking Nuns (Joff Winks and Matt Baber’s pre Sanguine Hum band). 

A future parable set in an entirely possible scenario, in which entirely impossible events start occurring, the concept is a twisted mix of Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, Frank Zappa’s Joe’s Garage and the Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. This ambitious record was Sanguine Hum's most successful yet, being hailed as a "masterpiece" by John Kelman at All About Jazz.

Henry Fool and No-Man drummer, Andrew Booker returns and renowned UK jazz vibraphone player Jim Hart guests.
