Another Season Passes
Who says you can\'t go back home again? This is a brand new release on the Kool Kat label from the re-formed band! And we\'re quite happy to report that they sound as if they never missed a beat! Led by founding members James Garner and Bill Lasley, they deliver nine new songs written between the early 80\'s and 2007! It\'s fun to try and guess which ones were written when! It reads like a New Wave/Brit Pop \'how to\' guide! From the opener, the Plimsouls/Paul Collins\' Beat-inspired \'Rising Tide\', to the jangle-filled, \'Stepping Stone\'-inspired \'Not As A Stranger\', to the East Coast/Gary Valentine-inspired pop of \'Along For The Ride\', to the Paisley Underground-inspired \'The Center\', to the 80\'s Brit-Pop inspired (think the verse melody of The Jam\'s \'Start\') \'Scared Streets\' (presented here in two versions - the version that appears later on the disc is VERY Jam-like in it's aggressive delivery), and the closing, bedroom acoustic pop of \'Hand In Hand\', you\'re swept away with good old fashioned, well-written, well-played, well-produced, jangly and crunchy guitar-filled, tastefully keyboard laced, New Wave Pop that we\'re absolute total suckers for!
