Lonely Boy - .......and Other Tragedies


I'm a stickler for innovation and I'm therefore not a big fan of anything that's at all retro...

No boss, you won't find Ocean Colour Scene or Oasis in my playlist - well not very often anyway...

And that was always part of my problem with that whole Brit Pop thing. With the exception of bands like The Boo Radleys & Pulp, the whole 'phenomena' sounded too deriviative, retro and soft to get too very excited about...

Well, here Lonely Boy has knocked something out that makes me think a little of Brit Pop, though I can't imagine why, other than I've just had a large double espresso and I'm begining to ramble on irrelevantly (even more so than normal)...

Roughly speaking, ......and other tragedies is an LP of mostly quite lo-fi guitar and vocal numbers with some extra instrumentation here and there. It meanders and saunters and it's pretty inofensive.

To be honest, I'm struggling to find much to write about it because I can't quite decide if I like it or not. I think it's probably OK, but it's not really my bag.

It reminds me a little of the Boo Radleys earlier and quieter moments. It's quite inofensive, the ex-wife might like it, it's OK and that's about as much as I can say...
