"Peacock celebrates life and all its absurdities and somehow channels that into music that is both chaotic and disciplined, rowdy but thought provoking, and on occasion capable of great beauty."

"Peacock has succeeded in creating a convincing musical world of his own, and for me the fact that it’s rooted in the everyday life of Bangor & Birmingham makes it all the more relevant and satisfying."
