8/10 Mike Staff review, 17 January 2013

Here’s a weird little novelty single. It’s on stripy black and white vinyl like a liquorice allsort and both the artist and song titles are all confectionery-based puns. On the first side we’ve got ‘It Takes All Sorts...’, a bouncy glam pop number with English language vocals, an outrageously catchy guitar hook. Sonically it’s got a bit of Stardust-era Bowie about it, saving it from falling into the traditional ‘90s-style crap novelty indie single pitfalls.

On the flip there’s the hilariously-named ‘Cadbury’s Voltaire’, which has verses in French which I don’t understand and then a chorus in English which I do. It sounds strangely like a more loungey version of The Strokes and the chorus really soars despite the silliness. I’m wary of novelty records but this is actually pretty decent, and has brought a smile to my face on an otherwise cold and gloomy day.
