    I introduced this to three friends the other night, not really expecting them to like it. They went mental - all of them are over 30 years old, play music on a hobby basis and are into rock. They'd never heard anything like it and I had to spell out M-U-L-A-T-U twenty times. There's something incredible about this music, it's completely unique and when it hits you, you are completely unprepared for it.
