Blimey this is good. If you don’t have Spotify seek out The Dowling Poole via other channels (I got the CD from HMV today so no excuses!) . They have a new record out called One Hyde Park – I’m a big Cardiacs fan so I was grabbed by the fact that the ‘Poole’ in this oufit is Jon Poole a former Cardiac – and this is wonderfully crafted, clever and imaginative guitar pop with crazy chord changes and psychedelic, soaring moments that Cardiacs fans will immediately feel at home with. Also if you like late period XTC there’s a huge dollop of Andy Patridge/Colin Moulding style wonderment in there too – only cranked up to 11. Going to see them live on Sunday – they’re also playing Huddersfield tonight and Glasgow on Saturday.
