Close Encounters of the Pennine Kind
The Night Monitor
Catalogue Number
Release Date
March 3, 2023

28th November 1980. Todmorden, Yorkshire. Policeman Alan Godfrey encounters a mysterious metallic craft of unknown origin hovering above the road, stopping his ‘panda’ patrol car in its tracks. Later, under hypnosis, he describes being taken aboard the UFO where he meets a mysterious humanoid entity named ‘Yosef’, a group of eight small robots ("Ugh! Them are horrible!") and, perhaps most strangely, a folkloric black dog.

‘Close Encounters of the Pennine Kind’ is The Night Monitor’s musical evocation of one man’s strange and personal experience - a classic case in UK UFO lore, filtered via an early 1980s orchestrated synthesiser soundtrack.
