Release Notes:
--------
So here it is - the story so far. A singer/songwriter lauded by his peers and
cited by such publications as the NME as sufficiently important as to being
required to be taught in schools. However the NME heyday as as important
indicators of talent and importance are long gone; it now being staffed by
stringers and a passionless ner do wells. We shall see for ourselves The album
is in chronological order and takes the listener on a trip that illustrates
BruntnellÆs development as a songwriter as well as an arranger and performer.
The early stuff from æCannibalÆ and æCamelot and SmithereensÆ is hard to date
and hard to classify although the cracked vocal is mixed low but still to the
fore. The arrangement on æ25 ReasonsÆ owes much to Jack NietzcheÆs work for the
Buffalo Springfield with its dreamy and somnambulant quality. The seeds had
been
sown.
The Rykodisc contributions from æNormal for BridgewaterÆ move Bruntnell
forward,
positing the theory that although a songwriter he is also a singer and band
leader carving out big sounds fit for arenas. æShot from a SpringÆ has all the
pedigree of a show stopper and indeed when performed with a full band can bring
the house down as the guitars drift and yearn through the melodies. The Loose
years begin with BruntnellÆs very own æPowderfingerÆ - æHere Come the SwellsÆ a
swaggering slice of American rock anglicised by the understated vocal delivery
yet still a towering, melancholy masterpiece with its cushion of guitars and
punchy harmonies. These are all deeply commercial songs that hold onto their
honesty and truth through careful production and a great sense artistry. The
joy
to be had listening to the Bruntnell/ James WalbourneÆs acoustic duet of æBy
The
Time My Head Gets To PhoenixÆ does not diminish - two guys , guitars, great
song
and sumptuous vocals. WhatÆs not to like?? By the time we reach the tracks from
the album Ghost in a Spitfire there is a sense of both artist and label
reaching
for the commercial breakthrough. These are massive songs and designed to be
heard by the masses. Then frustration or restlessness leads to a left turn
which
produces the wonderful and shapeshifting songs from æPeter and a Murder of
CrowsÆ - æCold Water SwimmerÆ and æDomesticoÆ . The songs have a playfulness
and
heft that exists within the swirling drones and Traffic like pastoralism. Still
the cracked clear vocals and excellent production but a road less travelled,
the
harmonium, the cellos and the hushed drums belying the beauty and bathos.
Stunning stuff. æBlack Mountain UFOÆ provides the penultimate tracks - breezy
Americana with a hint of English psychedelia although æGhost DogÆ owes as much
to YoungÆs æSouthern ManÆ. We finish with the bid for a hit - an old track
æPlayed OutÆ with added Rumer. ItÆs wonderful and her vocal fits like a glove .
Unnecessary but a great collaboration and this reviewer for one hope it does
the
trick. And what would that trick be? Sufficient commercial success to enable
Bruntnell to continue writing and performing without worrying about the next
quid so he can add to his exquisite back catalogue or massive public acceptance
leading to untold wealth and stadium tours and celebrity tie ins? I hope the
former but if heÆs after the latter then he deserves that too. This is is a
near
perfect album spoilt only by a lack of certain other songs and its title. It
should have been called be æAn introductionÆ or æ The songs you should know by
nowÆ but what do I know. Top work!
