Cosmic Neighbourhood, an ongoing fantasy comic, audio book and band, sprouts forth from the fruity brain of Bristol artist Adam Higton. The story centres on the adventures of Wizzo and his faithful elven companion, Tomte. Sonically, Higton’s benign toots and echoing jingles bring to mind Daphne Oram’s early delay experiments or the meandering playfulness of Tom Cameron. This is brilliant, and we hope the story continues soon.
