"The band which blew the cobwebs out of my head."
Jac Holzman (Elektra)


‘Strange Locomotion’ was the second and final album recorded by Kevin with Siren, the band he founded with former Bonzo Dog Band bassist Dave Clague and pianist/guitarist Nick Cudworth.

Originally issued on John Peel’s Dandelion label in 1971, ‘Strange Locomotion’ has been out-of-print on CD for many years.

This deluxe 2-CD edition has been re-mastered from the original tapes, with a whole bonus disc of rare home and studio recordings from the period, previously only available on fanclub-style releases. It features the first release on CD of ‘Lillian’, a song that only appeared on the US Elektra edition of the LP, together with another US-only album addition, the 7” UK A-Side ‘The Stride’.

Featuring rare and previously unseen photos and cuttings of Siren, the 16-page booklet features an interview with founder member Dave Clague recorded specially for this release, and an in-depth look at the band’s history.
