Dead in the Boot was a B side collection from Manchester soak Guy Garvey and his not so merry band of brothers. It was released in 2012 and was sequenced in non chronological order to attempt to make it flow as an album. It is resolutely downbeat and showcases a different side to their rainswept rock and Garvey's back of a beermat observations.

8/10 Jack 17th August 2016I thought The Seldom Seen Kid was a pretty album, and I was curious when I heard about Dead in the Boot. This is an interesting collection of songs (B sides and non-album tracks) that have a very ethereal feel to them. This album can give you musical whiplash the way some of the songs are ordered. The most ferocious song "McGreggor" is between the gentle numbers "Lullaby" and "Buffalo Ghosts". I say that rather tongue in cheek, though. It gives the album variety. I think you should give it try if you like their other stuff.
