8/10 Clinton Staff review, 31 December 2006
Smog or (Smog) hasn't been a favourite of mine since he slept with my mates girlfriend. All a bit nasty that and coupled with his dreadful recent output I had kind of given up on him. But against all odds the Harrogate born song minstrel comes good. This new album stands up well with his earlier good music and sounds like he's put a bit of effort in. Good songs, nice arrangements, yep Supper is a return to form.

8/10 Tom Arnold Customer review, 7th January 2014

Supper came at somewhat of a career juncture for the artist formerly known as Smog. After knocking out a decade’s worth of low-fi sadness, Bill Callahan achieved minor commercial success with 1999’s Knock Knock – the single ‘Cold Blooded Old Times’ was featured on the soundtrack for the film interpretation of Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity. After the slightly mediocre (by Callahan’s standards, anyway) Dongs Of Sevotion and Rain On Lens LPs that followed, Supper represented a more stripped back and countrified approach which set the template for the consistently high standards set by Callahan since dropping the Smog moniker in 2007. Several of the album’s tracks remain some of Callahan’s best work. ‘Our Anniversary’ is a touching but cautionary tale of middle-aged martial contentment, while ‘Truth Serum’ evolves into a tender duet with guest vocals from Sarabeth Tucek. ‘Butterflies Drowned In Wine’ breaks up the late-night melancholy with some signature Callahan-Velvets boogie. If you enjoyed Bill’s 2013 Americana opus Dream River, Supper is an excellent introduction to his earlier work and a telling insight into the evolution of his sound throughout a fascinating career.
