4/10 Clinton 20 November 2014

Last week I reviewed a pretty decent batch of ‘90’s sounding indie-rock by Get Well Soon finding myself charmed by a couple of the tracks and their dEUS-like oddness. Comparing this record to that one is like comparing a sausage to a combined harvester.

This is a series of (mostly despairing) covers in a variety of styles. First up Bobby Beausoleil’s ‘Lucifer Rising’ a perfectly acceptable piece of cinematic electronica but please don’t cover Wham’s ‘Careless Whisper’  - particularly in a faux ironic style with croon-some eyebrow arching vocals.  ‘Oh My Love’ by Riz Ortolani is both boring and pointless. The Stranglers ‘Always the Sun’ is a bit livelier but very faithful to the original. David Bowie’s ‘Rocket Man’ is done in an acoustic style and is instantly forgettable.

However, I’ve been worried about their take on my favourite song of all time the Beach Boys ‘Til I Die’ all day and I’ve finally plucked up the courage to play it. The verses are fair to middling but lacking any enthusiasm especially on the ‘hey hey hey’s’ which are delivered with all the enthusiasm of a man forced to sing whilst stood at the gallows. They deal with the ridiculously complex vocal flip that leads to the coda by not bothering with it at all, instead they stop the song dead for a few seconds thoug  the coda itself is handled fairly nicely clawing back a bit of cocking self respect on an otherwise atrocious record.
