Psychedelic karaoke lo-fi lounge, known for collaborations with Sun City Girls, Vibracathedral Orchestra and Sunburned Hand of the Man amongst many others.
'From Sun City Girls to At Jennie Richie, Diamante and his pals cover a wide array of styles and moods. Sad, funny, and deeply weird, this album is as odd as can be without being strange for the sake of strangeness. There is real human tenderness under all schlock and mock horror which makes A Spoonful of Yeast one of those brilliant unhinged pop albums which never get made anymore. ... This mix of humor and emotional force is replicated throughout A Spoonful of Yeast where songs about custard rub shoulders with phantasmagorical descriptions of unknown horrors. A camp, Halloween vibe runs through many of the songs; it is easy to imagine Diamante bathed in a green light surrounded by dry ice as he sings his lines. On "Riga" he sets up the scene of an evil creature stalking the night before breaking into a hilarious refrain of "This toilet reminds me of Riga." All through this, Sunburned Hand of the Man provide a shimmering, pastoral psychedelic backing.' John Kealy, brainwashed.com
