6/10 Clinton Staff review, 22 July 2011

Steve Mason's 'Boys Outside' album from 2010 has been reworked by Dennis Bovell in a dub style. Why? I don't know. The original album was a pretty decent slice of Mason's lazy lollopy style where after many years of underachievement he finally got his ideas into some kind of order. It's worth a punt definitely. Now, at someone's insistence, Bovell has got involved and provides a nice but tame digital dub feeling to the proceedings. No great use of analogue gear from the sounds of it, no cavernous King Tubby style explorations. 'Dub Position' has some nice effects on the guitars and occasionally a lumbering bassline comes into play. Mason's vocals are used sparingly and trumpets are brought into the mix. The rest of the tracks float by in a pleasant but meaningless manner and there are more questions left than answers. Who is this going to appeal to? Why is it coming out as a separate release and then as a two CD set with the original album?  I have never understood record company mechanics - it's a mystery to me. If this came as a bonus to the original album then fair enough - it would make a nice accompaniment but as a separate release I'm not sure it stands up despite a few nice flourishes here and there.
