Ridge Farm Boiler compressor?

Has anyone had any experience with it? Is it another Joe Meek type comp?(One trick pony) or is it a versatile fast sounding unit? Someone mentioned that it does the"SSL" thing better than the Smart comp. Any opinions?

According to the gear pimps at Funky Junk:
"Dual/stereo solid state compressor, based on a console talkback amplifier. Fat sounding, extreme compression, attack and release times are either Slow or Fast. Great fun, not for faint hearts or string quartets."

Here's a review:

Someone once told me that it's similar to a Distressor at 20:1 or on Nuke all the time. I guess that could be cool for some stuff. Is there a dealer or distributor in the states?

I have used a Ridge Farm Gas Cooker Di, at one of the UK's premier rock studios (Gt Linford Manor) but it was on a totally lame band..

It SEEMED cool.
