7/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 April 2016

This is basically the whole of Trembling Bells further mining the decade that gave them their sound  - the 1970s. However, whereas Trembling Bells are influenced by the complicated folk rock of the decade this is more in thrall to it's glam rock/pub rock scene. You can imagine this coming out alongside Brinsley Shwarz and Rockpile records in that denim and mullets bit of the '70s before punk rock swept it all away. 'Navigator' has a folky edge which also recalls later period Steeleye Span and Fiddlers Dram.

Overleaf (care to switch to 33rpm) is another piece of folk/fuzz/glam like if Sandy Denny joined Vinegar Joe. Brilliantly, this is recorded so muffled that it sounds like a dreadful old 7" you've picked up at a car boot somewhere and tried to play on one of those old '70s radiograms that take up half of the room.

I can't promise I'd ever want to listen to this again but it's authentically done and it sounds like they are having fun.
