This album is quintessentially English, like the Smiths & the Wedding Present; full of down-to-earth, kitchen-sinky tales of booze. Ravetank successfully takes prosaic occurances and turns them into something spectacular. It’s great listening to a really good multi-instrumentalist/‘one-man-band’, as their vision isn’t compromised by other band members. Ravetank is no exception, great guitar, bass, banjo & organ work. Some of the noisier bits remind me of a pre-grunge Dinosaur Jr and early Sebadoh, which of course is a good thing! The experimental flurries serve the songs, & do not distract from a pop sensibility- the poppier aspect of these tunes take me back to janglepop bands of the 80s, like the Housemartins & the Farmer’s boys. Also, a subtle sense of humour comes across in this recording, which many other artists fail to do. I highly recommend this album, nice CD-R too!
