This new album from Stanley Brinks will appeal to fans of Herman Düne, because Mr Düne is in fact Mr Brinks! Here he teams up with Norwegian folk group The Old Time Kaniks to explore a pleasing avenue of calypso-folk that he takes to like a duck to water. Double album Vieilles Caniques / Nouvelles Caniques is released by Fika in 2CD and 2LP editions.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 January 2017

Stanley Brinks (aka a former Herman Dune dude) has eeked out a pretty decent career by being constantly on the road playing his reasonably good songs to legions of fans. Here he is joined by Norwegian folk two piece The Old Time Kaniks who supply banjo and fiddle to these simple rustic compositions. Brinks has a thin reedy voice which sits on top of the music like a nasal flag. He doesn't at all sound French. 

The songs are the typical Herman Dune fair in being easi-follow singalongs that even an idiot like me could holler along to. He basks in the sort of choruses that will have pubs of followers singing along and having a good time but oversteps the mark a bit on the otherwise enjoyable opener 'Ten In the Morning' where he begins to yodel. Otherwise this is enjoyably old timey campfire singalongs that I'm sure would sound rather good in an old style pub with a roaring fire and Stan and pals in the corner belting them out until way after closing time.
