6/10 Phil Staff review, 18 November 2010
Aw man I'm sooo tired.... I really need more sleep! I'll see if my namesake can keep me awake! It's a quirky one this one alright. It's packaged in one of those arigato packs with a silk screened cover. Inside you get a little booklet with some info with some drawings and words in. Musically it's very different to the kind of music which normally arrives in arigato packs (drone....) Here you've got lo-fi recordings straddling genres such as country and pop and some croonery-ness. It's a weird mix! The opener and a handful of other tracks really remind me of some of the early Baby Bird recordings what with the Bontempi sounding organ etc. The sound is similar to that of Dave Cloud with a bit more of a country rock feel. It sounds wrong but it isn't. It weirdly works. And there's a song called 'St. James Infirmary' which makes me think of all of those years I spent in hospital as a poorly child. Ah thems were the days and yes this has done the job of keeping me awake!
