Anyway first up is a CD by The Second Hand Marching Band called 'A Dance To Half Death' . Probably the easiest thing I've ever had to review. They are a Scottish folk collective. They come from Fife and they sound like a twee Scottish version of Beirut. Lots of parping horns, wheezing accordians and choraled vocals. It all has a very uplifting feel and I could imagine sloshing pints of beer around to this, singing along and making a fool of myself. I love the name of the record label - Chaffinch Records. How delightful. In this day and age of misery, stabbings and poverty its nice to hear something that reminds me of the beautiful Scottish countryside and a much more innocent time. I'll give you more comparisons if you want? Vashti Bunyan, the Fence Collective,,Lucky Luke, Beirut (again) the music from the Wickerman or a happy Matt Elliott. Apparently we are the only shop in England selling this!
