Ulusulu Music is proud to present this digital reissue of Iain McLaren's legendary 1998 experimental album.

This experimental lo-fi album is full of heart - all at once unique, quirky, and deep.

Originally self-released in 1998, "Now Try To Be Cute" is the classic experimental lo-fi album by Iain McLaren, presented now in the digital age by Ulusulu Music. Oddball piano solos peppered with gibberish vocal harmonies are interspersed with unpredictable swatches of colour created by basketballs, oil rigs, metal chains, and hand drums in the most peculiar polyrhythms. Somehow, all of this deep strangeness is instantly likeable for its innocent playfulness. Iain's is a rare breed of creativity, as some fans may know from his prior work with metal band Sadistic Humor, rockers Hob-Nob, experimental duo Tragedy Hashbrown and Cable 10's Euphoria Emporium.
