Peace City West [Import]
2011 album from the guitarist, songwriter, sharp dresser and all round top bloke. Steve Cradock is familiar to most as the long-serving guitarist in Paul Weller's band and a member of Ocean Colour Scene. With a revolving cast of musicians including long-time OCS fan, actor James Buckley (Jay from the Inbetweeners) on guitar and vocals, it's as richly melodic as you'd expect from someone with such an established musical pedigree. If this bucolic 'getting it together in the country' feel can be heard in tender ballad 'Little Girl', Peace City West is also a very personal record, notably 'Only Look Up When You're Down'. The album also features a certain Paul Weller.
