Description

Bristol's answer to Jonathan Richman: country-tinged folk-pop with wry, humorous lyrics.

Notes

"Wry humour and faultless musical chops highlight this second album from Bristol’s McCrindle as a cut above the rest. From ‘When Tuesday Comes Around’’s exploration of the ethics of pulling a sickie to play a gig (“I know a doctor who loves his music”) to the tale of a treasonable terrine in the Orkneys (‘Swan Song’), there is barely a dull or predictable moment. McCrindle is confident enough, too, to build his stories with concrete detail: cameos for Christmas Steps and Colston Street (the apparently factual ‘Bob Dylan’s In A Joke Shop’), and Park Street in The Divine Comedyish ‘Bristol Babes’ (“Nowhere else compares to Bristol/’Cept for maybe San Francisco”). Shaun McCrindle stakes his claim as Bristol’s own Jonathan Richman. “I ain’t no fun,” he growls towards the end. Oh, come now." (Anna Britten)
