James Yorkston is back on the old animal theme trail with his 'Tortoise Regrets Hare' 7" on Domino. The Scotsman is in fine form accompanied by Nancy Elizabeth (nee Cunliffe) on vocals. There's a wonderful earthy feel to the track but the synthetic bass just takes it somewhere else. I cant 't grasp exactly what he's on about (this coming from a Welshman like myself!) but he's clearly off on one. His buddy King Creosote does his own version on the B-side which seems to be the thing these days. Y' know covering tracks instead of remixing them. Actually I didn't notice Nancy Elizabeth's vocals on the original but there's a female vocal here which makes me think someone may have cocked up the credits on the sleeve. (Fall) Heads will roll. I never wrote any of the bits in brackets here. Some nugget felt the need to tamper with my review.
