'Tea at the Palaz of Hoon' is based on the eponymous poem by the American modernist poet Wallace Stevens. The poem was published in his debut ‘Harmonium’ (Knopf, 1923).
“It’s incomprehensible oracular as far as we are concerned, but beautiful nonetheless. And the text fitted beautifully as a Dylanesque third-from-The-Velvet Underground-track. These are also musicians with whom we feel kinship, just like with Belle & Sebastian (their older works), and The Pastels.” - Marc van der Holst, Spilt Milk guitarist and songwriter
