- Dan Haywood’s New Hawks by Dan Haywood
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 09 December 2010
An ambitious record certainly. Haywood, originally from Lancaster, got sick of everything and buggered off to Scotland to explore wildlife and when he returned spent five years making this record. Its a curious mix of Scottish folk music, Robyn Hitchcock-style whimsy and West Coast (of America) laid back songwriting recalling David Crosby and pals. The voice is sure to be an acquired taste to some sitting on top of the mix recalling English eccentrics such as Vic Goddard, Syd Barrett and their Australian/New Zealand counterparts Pip Proud and Alastair Galbraith, underneath it traditional folk strings tangle with steel guitars, heartily strummed acoustic guitars and clattery drums. The songs are eccentric, stop-starty and recall The Moles forgotten madcap finale 'Instinct'. It's hard at first to get a grip of it but the more I listen the more impressive it's becoming and should certainly be given time to reveal itself. The type of record that someone, somewhere is going to fall helplessly in love with - it could even be me... We'll see. Comes on double CD and triple vinyl box set.
