This winning album is Rew's first since his EP, THE BIBLE OF BOP, in 1982, which appeared between his tenures with the Soft Boys and Katrina & The Waves. Besides being the guitarist for the latter combo, he was also their main songwriter. This time out he's singing his songs himself. He's accompanied by a fine ensemble of like-minded players, including old cohorts Robyn Hitchcock and Andy Metcalfe, Glenn Tilbrook from Squeeze, Julian Dawson, and Dave Mattacks.
One can't help but be won over by the catchy melodies, muscular guitar hooks, and propulsively rocking rhythms of these smart, punchy pop tunes. Rew is also quite capable of presenting himself in more pared-down settings, as on "Rosemary Jane" and "Beautiful Ruth." An impressive instrumentalist as well, Rew sets vocals aside for the album-closing "Alice Klaar," which evokes an expansive kind of surf music.
Professional Reviews
Q (11/00, p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Crammed with the kind of cross-Atlantic, post-Beatles pop best personified by Squeeze and Teenage Fanclub...[this] overflows with quintessential Englishness....Superb."
CMJ (6/00, p.72) - "...Proves himself as much influenced by Ray Davies as by former bandmate Robyn Hitchcock....Rew displays a fondness for rambling monologues barely disguised as ballads..."
No Depression (5-6/00, p.115) - "...[A] winning album....smart and punchy pop....one can't help but be won over by the catchy melodies, the muscular guitar hooks, and the propulsively rocking rhythms..."
Mojo (Publisher) (6/00, p.106) - "...A showcase for his winning way with melody lines and hooks....This album travels first class."
