5/10 Clinton Staff review, 04 October 2013
Who wants a collaboration between Yummy Fur/1990s frontman Jackie McKeown and Bernard Butler of Suede and The Tears. Come on hands up, you can do better than that! Well here it is anyway. The A side is a slice of rock somewhere between early '80s soundtrack rock and a Primal Scream B side circa ‘Give Out But Don’t Give Up . A bit Loggins, it consists of McKeown shouting out random numbers in lieu of lyrics. Good idea! You could on forever like this. “853 keep it rocksteady, 727 keep it rock steady” on and on and on while Butler noodles away.
Marginally better is ‘Jubilee’‘ which contains actual lyrics and sounds not unlike Collins-era Genesis. On the B side there is a terrible rock opus that descends into noodling then something called ‘Dancing Shoes’ which would like to think it's kraut-like in its simplicity but I’d probably prefer Quo-like. Who says ‘Put on Your Dancing Shoes’ these days? Arctic Monkeys have said the same thing but who says it in real life? I’ve never said that to anyone. It's like the perpetrators are intentionally trying to annoy us and it's on this level and this level only that it more than succeeds.
