First up Al Duvall. Now this would have
probably been my favourite release of 2003 had it come out then.
But now its finally available for mass consumption it sounds better than
ever. What a record.WHAT A RECORD!!! 'The most
remarkable record I've heard in ages'. No, not my words. The words of
Brian sitting here just to my right. How to describe it? I simply can't do
it justice in words. Its kind of old fashioned singing and playing with
banjo's kazoo's and ukulele. It could have been made anytime in the last
100 years or so. The songs are insanely catchy - every one is a winner.
The lyrics are funny and entertaining. You simply can't keep your ears off it. I'm fishing around hopelessly for
comparisons: maybe Crabstick's 'Stud or Houseboy' LP from ages ago
or American oddballs like The Tinklers or Ed's Redeeming
Qualities, the upcoming Charlie Parr CD (but chirpier) or I suppose
George Formby other than that I'm lost (but happy). Utter utter genius of
the highest order. Thank you V/VM.
