Compounding their problems, the duo were then threatened with legal action by Karl Bartos of Kraftwerk, whose electro-pop offshoot shared their name. Undeterred, Doyle and Brown suffixed their name with AKA and signed to Sanctuary in 2003 to release The Resurrection Show, which met with similar acclaim. Its memorable cover depicted the pair photographed inside the decaying Victorian grandeur of the Great Hall in London’s Alexandra Palace. Joining the duo on Haunted are keyboardist Steve Aungle, bassist Ashley Dublin and drummer Graham Instrall.

A restrained, comforting mixture of sweet melody and sparkling invention.” NME “Near-unique…these mid-tempo pop songs create their own quiet little world.” Q “Cut-and-paste techniques on unlikely soft-rock sounds craft sweet, sad pop songs.” MOJO “A perfect Sunday afternoon record.
