The single ‘Mr. Music’ is the first in a series of releases for Fortuna Pop with Veronica Falls/ Proper Ornaments/Ultimate Painting’s James Hoare.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 14 July 2015
Pete Astor just pops along doesn't he? Doing a bit of this, a bit of that. The former The Loft and the Weather Prophets man is content to make pleasant strummy homespun indie with storytelling lyrics and its all rather lovely indeed. The A Side 'Mr Music' is a catchy little slab of low key pop from this Senior Lecturer at the University of Westminster.
Over on the flip 'Armitage Shanks' (the king of toilets) sounds quite remarkably like Leonard Cohen's 'Hallalujah' and I'm sure Astor can write a thesis on what the 'sha la las' towards the end actually mean. Or he's just having a bit of fun between his studies.
