The Flower Machine began as a solo project by long-time Majestic member Peter Quinnell, and over the summer of 2003 became a working group featuring Peter, Jeff Moore, Cody Gorman, and Chris Shulda. The album was recorded the year prior, with assistance from Majestic singer Scott Schulz who mixed and mastered the CD for release.
And what of the music? The Flower Machine mixes indie-pop melodies, acoustic atmospheres, and unhinged electronic psychedelic experimentation, resulting in a collection of diverse sound poems, characterized by Peter's epigrammatic lyrics which variously concern the magical echoes of Spring (In the Glow), the secret world of prehistoric fish (I Am the Coelacanth), and consciousness expansion on an inter-city train (British Rail). "Sounds a bit like the Beatles" is something they hear often. "A slight Syd Barrett influence" was considered a compliment as well.
