8/10 Brett 20 August 2008
It's awful when you've been to the kebab shop and the next day you curl out some brown flakes. It'd be even worse if you looked down afterwards and saw Flake Brown staring back at you with his little folky face and his giant marrow fingers bleeding profusely from playing his 10p guitar. 'Help the Overdog' is a collection of mental ramblings backed solely by his wee guitar, indebted to all sorts of old-school influences but with a modern day (occasionally sinister) weirdness to the lyrics, not to mention the fairly manic and nuts singing style he slips into every now and again. I guess I might've just described that whole 'freak folk' thing but since I didn't want to use that phrase there we got to go the scenic route. He's certainly a talented guy at doing that charmingly wonky Django-style guitar stuff. We reckon it sounds quite like David Thomas Broughton so if you're into all that kind of business this'll be well up your street.
