Got in early with this bugger so I could henpeck the boys till I got my own way. Thanks to Cargo for actually sending us a promo for this so I could sit at home with a beer & indulge myself proper style instead of panicking with a five minute time frame, struggling with words to describe the genius of Robert Lloyds' legendary comeback kids. A set of (mostly) balding, fat old men that look like they've just fallen out of the Flatulent Turkey public house in Moseley shouldn't be making such great records at their age. But neither should the Fall & 'Heads Will Roll' was blinding. If you've never heard Peel's unsung heroes then this brand new studio set is as good a place to start as any.
Taking their cue from Beefheart's more frantic, rumbling twisted rock moments, The Fall (& post punk's) irresistible way with off kilter dueling rhythm guitars, wonky repetition, ear deceiving drum fill ins (the drumming is frankly, brilliant), hugely cynical & hilariously observed lyrics (they reek of British fish supper class) They exude a kind of drunken yet edgy freeform indie rock energy last seen in the glory days of maybe Half Man Half Biscuit but dragged kicking & screaming into ver millennium with some vigorous, powerful production.
Birmingham based Nightingales provide a true alternative, fleshing some bizarre & compulsive material into a distinctive & delightful music that is vital given the current alt guitar scene. They lighten the eccentricity toward the end with their barnstorming wedding reception cover of Bob Luman's 'Let's Think About Living', Kevin Coyne's 'Good Boy' & a bittersweet Ray Davies penned number finishing this superb album off in suitably hushed style. If you care about alternative rock & all those great bands from the 80's you used to hear on Peel & miss that great sound terribly then invest in this enormously rewarding CD
