Further Conclusions Against an Italian Version (BAT) is the debut album from Socrates that practiçes music. The London-based group have been compared to Bauhaus and A Certain Ratio, The Nightingales and The Mekons. Recently Socrates would be well described as a two-man metagoth outfit who use samplers, synths, guitars and drums to explore the occult, shire horses, legal wrangles and less-than-confident gardeners. “It’s like Country Life magazine edited by M.R. James and designed by Barney Bubbles” (Norris Stoat, Melody Maker).

“…art-rock and neo-folk with an eccentric counterpoint to place themselves beyond the reach of all. Stabs at profundity that reach beyond the cabaret or the intentionally weird and find themselves in the orbit of the Jefferies brothers at a better time for us all.” (Doug Mosurock)

“…As much as the term “art rock” makes me shudder (isn’t all music “art”?), Further Conclusions is, in a post-Devo age, as artsy as it gets outside of possibly the work of the folks who started out as artists and moved into audio (Stephen Spera, Hoor-Paar-Kraat) and as frustrating — and occasionally gratifying — as any record I’ve heard since the reemergence of prog delivered bands like The Rhythm Of Black Lines. Not bad company.” (Gumshoe)

“…Imagine the repetition of The Fall mating the quirky oddball songwriting of Robyn Hitchcock and your still not close to knowing what this band sounds like.”
