7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 21st November 2014
I queued outside the arena of the Reading Festival in 1992 for ages, still don’t know what caused the hold up, but I wanted to see Jellyfish who were first on the main stage that day. I missed them, and got in just in time to see Madder Rose. I do remember hearing the insanely catchy “Baby’s Coming Back” floating through the air though.
Jellyfish, in just two albums, managed to distill the essence of power pop like no other band has since. Jellyfish had the advantage of the likes of The Beatles, Big Star, Badfinger and the Raspberries doing it some 20 years earlier of course. Nevertheless, they managed to write melodies that soared and harmonies that melted you.
“Now She Knows She’s Wrong” has the McCartney bounce that Jellyfish carried off so proficiently and “When the King is Half Undressed” recalls The Posies in their “Dear 23” period.
“Bellybutton” was a great start, they did manage to improve upon it with their second and final album “Spilt Milk”.
