US only LP pressing. Oh! Mighty Engine is Neil's 2008 solo record. Neil is a current member of Mojave 3 and former member of Slowdive. This a record that can make one be happy, sad, and laugh all at once. Neil is very English and mumbles phrases like 'pithy liner', 'dangerous dolt' and other local slang. Neil has never been blatant or obvious with his words. He writes songs that are very personal to him, and then allows space for everyone to take their own meaning away from his lyrics ('Go skies and thrones and wings. And poetry and things' from the song 'Elevenses'). Neil recorded this record partially at The Solar Powered Plastic Plant in L.A. and the rest in his hometown of Cornwall, England. He surfed in the mornings, then drank beer and recorded with various friends in the evening. Neil is an old soul and this solo record is welcoming, warm, clever and kind.
