The second of three ground-breaking albums by the ultimate power trio who morphed blues into hard rock and spawned punk.

A much-loved opus with a side-long concept piece. A bona fide inspirational rock classic.

"Tony McPhee has turned to anarchic paranoid battlegrounds of the mind for inspiration," Melody Maker.

And a second side that delivers the mighty 'Cherry Red', McPhee's take on The Beatles' 'A Day In the Life', a sideswipe at junk food and a glorious interpretation of John Lee Hooker's 'Groundhogs Blues'.

"Both musically and lyrically, 'Split' speaks for a lost time, a nomad time when ideals took to the hoof and musicians stayed on the road rather than confront the fact that the '60s 'war' had been lost." Julian Cope "Supercharged, fractured and raging." MOJO.
