Bone Idol - The Triumph of Entropy

Just came across this in my music collection this evening,
and have a very vague recollection of buying it some years ago,
and perhaps listening to it only once prior to discovering it again this evening...

Has anyone heard of this one before?
Any ideas who the musician behind this might be?

I've searched online and apart from a few reviews etc there's not much else.

The album itself is actually rather good,
particularly the long 3rd track "The Triumph of Entropy".

Any information would be appreciated by this curious listener... Wink

I would have thought it was Stone Idols rather than Bone Idol...

If it's Bone Idol, I'm sure it's not the band Rob Jenkins was a part of...

It's not your memory, Mike, it's just that idols have become a bit redundant lately.

A bit of surfing finds an entry at discogs with two SMD releases:
https://www.discogs.com/artist/2062916-Bone-Idol-2

A page that Google knows about (but might be dead now) says:
"The guitar is my first instrument, but I use it more often to embellish the electronica rather than as the basis of the music. Skinweld used to be known as BONE IDOL, until I realised that lots of other people around the world had the same sense of humour as me and we also using the name... "

And one Neil Glover has posted a couple of tracks to YouTube:

I assume he is the artist.

Thanks Timanfaya Very Happy

It looks to be the same guy,
although he appears to have called it a day musically some years ago.
