Keep It Together is the fourth full-length album from the Fenlands shadow puppet master The Doozer. Relocating to a village hall, little-theatre-style, he sets the task with a cast of eleven players dipping in and out, old Mrs. Mallows holding the keys.  
Previous albums are primarily lonesome affairs, so this group activity holds sway on the album’s all-enveloping sound. Chords are the name of the game, and it’s certainly got them! You hear guitars, bass, piano and drums; slipping in to lift those harmonies, a string quartet and horns…. Is that a tuba from the Salvation Army, you say? Yeah it is, and salvation is at hand. Just let it come down from the “Aluminum Dome.” Perhaps you know what the weather’s like here, but if you don’t, take some advice from “Fen Drayton.” Or, if you’re in doubt about what flowers to get your girl, then check out “Fold Up Chair.” Are you undecided on your God? That’s “Oh Unbelievers!” But none of it’s good advice, it’s just a crack at the seam. 
 
“A recent show that blew all attending asses out of the water was a short gig by a Cambridge, UK, duo known as The Doozer. The Doozer actually seems to be one guy, and his playing partner is called Ben, but never you mind. Anyway, they have a new LP out on Siltbreeze called Great Explorers and it is a gas and a pleasure of great dimensions. The lazy man’s way to review it to call it a bridge between Syd B and Chris Knox, carrying all the weird damage and superb left field pop motion that implies.” —Byron Coley, Bull Tongue Top Ten of 2010
