Album Notes
The Hatred Of The Middle Classes

The Hatred Of The Middle Classes is a vagrant,fairly out-there,lo-fi piece of middle class trampery. It has few airs and graces yet there is a spunky beauty about Sly and Reggie's third album.

It has a hymn-like mixture of striving for poetical truth that wants to speak large with music that is jammed out with passion and verve. A hint of madness is never far away, smoothed out and cosseted by strong melody.

The lead vocalist deserves to be punched,lauded,derided,applauded,resented and shamed yet it is a musical album. The guitars are really get-into-able,the drums are spot on,the melodies are first rate.

It might be funny at times, hysterical even, but they have not made a comedy recording. Slightly madcap but not comical.
They are not joking.
