Funny the things you come across when you work at Norman Records. Jim Johnston used to sing in Bristol's sorta trip-hop pioneers Monk And Canatella whose 'Who's Who?' single for some reason became part of my life for a brief period around the end of the 90's - probably due to their association with Portishead. Always thought Johnston had a fairly convincing voice and the duo were one of them anomalies that I couldn't help but be curious about. Oh, and they had that home produced White Town vibe which I liked a lot at the time. As I recall one of their tracks sampled early Mothers Of Invention - I might be wrong but that's how I choose to remember it. Nowadays Johnston is trading in the more traditional singer-songwriter genres of 'rock' and 'pop' and expanding on his guitar technique. 'Voyage Of Oblivion' is not all that far removed from his early work and his voice is such a trademark it's hard to associate it with anything else. So, the beats are gone but the voice remains. Make of that what you will. I'm too confused to make any sense of it.
