- Sea Monsters The Best Of Brighton by Various
A compilation of various artists courtesy of the record label/gig promoter conglomerate that is One Inch Badge. All artists are from or have a link to Brighton-next-the-sea which for the uninitiated is kind of like a trendy version of Filey. And there is a tonne of them and it's of remarkably high quality. Here is an at-a-glance rundown for your delectation. The Sticks do a marvellous garagey racket with madcap sax and wonderfully out of tune bass. Pope Joan make scratchy tuneful indie not unlike a lo-fidelity Black Kids (remember them?), Hind Ear plough an interesting brand of noisy avant funk with cues taken from A Certain Ratio and Moonshake, Us Baby Bear Bones sound like famed Brighton based (I think) Insides or more recently Conquering Animal Sound. The most 'famous' band here and the reason the label was set up Sons of Noel and Adrian contribute a sweet folky number that begins with a haunting string red herring before emerging as a beautifully rustic autumnal shanty. Highly impressive. Nice to see Stuart Warwick represented. He uses piano and vocal to produce ethereal songs that sound like Jeff Buckley singing atop a Max Richter tune. Salter Can sound like Nick 'Dick' Cave. On and on it goes. Time and space allow me to omit tracks by the likes of The Hornblower Brothers, Illness, Cold Pumas, Drum Eyes, etc, etc. 18 tracks in all and guess the price? Go on? £3.59 - roughly the price of a Brighton pint.
