Not long after the sunny, textural experiments of "midwives and hello eskimo" (Live recordings off the ’whatever’ album), aside from its importance as mark j hickling..s evolutionary compositional master piece, we are treated to an intense, personal vision of the vagaries of a love affair and the painful, introverted anxieties that are the wrenching precipitates of the chemistry of any love relationship. And by God if this little record doesn..t change only the course of popular music, It sure as hell is changing its creator, Mark.
Now off the back of their debut with the ‘God’ of anything musical, Brian Wilson, yes we said ‘Brian Wilson’
(third track in on the ‘UNDER GOD’ cd available from endless summer quarterly mag, mr David Beard.) we are treated to a ‘magical’ musical event through this new album ‘FREE THE LADYKILLERS’ ! (LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN), after you have spun these amazing tracks just once, you will agree with me, every track is just ‘fantastic’ , well worthy for the IVOR awards next year !
