- You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks by Seasick Steve
1/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 May 2011
Or maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks as Steve Wold discovered when he gave up the day job as Modest Mouse producer and Beach Boys touring member to become Seasick Steve, some homeless guy who ended up on Jools Holland. Apart from the fact that Wold hadn't been homeless since aged 16, it was a good story and fooled the public so much that he ended up as anti-hero of the festival picnic brigade. I once saw him at End of the Road festival and he barely played any songs as he was so busy with the shucks what's an old homeless geezer doing on this big stage schtick. Another reason could be that he doesn't have any songs as is proven by this new album which is unmitigatingly, unrelentingly awful. Save for the first track which conversely is pretty good. After that I'm not sure where the line between this and, lets say, The Robert Cray Band, is drawn. Its hopeless, contrived, unlistenable, hoary old blues by an untalented chancer who must thank his lucky stars for the gullibility of the British public as he locks the door to his mansion each night.
