This quirky chap is one of my favorite Welshmen of all time apart from our Ant & every stoner's demi-god Mr. Howard Marks. His songs always surprise me with their feel good effortlessness. This bugger, a definite stand-out track off his new album, is another perfect radio-shagging cracker that lodges in your mind like a half-sucked sticky sweet torpedo with moist brain-schlooping suckers attached. When he eventually does a solo best-of comp it will probably eclipse the one he & his daft mushroom-scoffing brethren put out a few years back. It'll be a true Songbook indeed. The flip is a beauty psychedelic lullaby, seemingly an improvisation on a traditional tune. It sounds like a right wonky Magic Roundabout folk-a-thon. Think of a massive peach coloured bus wobbling down Sunny lanes in Wales with loads of stoned animals & kids hanging out of the windows laughing whilst Gruff drives, rocking from side to side, leading the melody rich trail like a whacked out pied piper. Truly heartwarming & massively endearing.
