Fucking hell. We were wondering what to do with this Chris Olley CD. Throw it in the bin was a tempting option but as he was singer for the powerful, epic behemoth that was Six by Seven, we thought we'd give it another spin. His schtick on 'A Streetcar Named Disaster' is largely nasally GCSE poetry & dull rhyming couplets over rudimentary pub-rock-folk & dull singer-songwriter guitar plod. Without the sonic onslaught of his former band, he's left with a rather cack handed and frankly boring sounding record occasionally infused with amateur psychedelic touches, tediously predictable chord changes & spirit crushing attempts at "acoustic drone" & "space rock". I cannot believe this man was partially responsible for 'The Things We Make', a record that blew my heart to pieces. Maybe it's supposed to be depressing but it's currently December & there's enough rubbish out there without this lowering my spirits further. There is, however, the occasional reprieve - 'Journey Through The Past' has a jaunty, euphoric spirit to it & when all's said & done I'd much rather he's out there keeping some old 6x7 devotees happy than sat at home despairing at the current state of the country on the idiot lantern like most people. So, not an abject failure, just too unremittingly dreary in places. Like most "solo" albums I suppose....! CD only on Long Distance Runner.
