"Things May Come and Things May Go but
The Art School Dance Goes On Forever".
(Pete Brown and Piblokto 1970).

I've always had a soft-spot for slightly left-of-centre
music. You know how it is. You put that treasured new
album on for your friends to listen to and they stare at
you as though you've grown horns and a third eye !

"Wolfie you have GOT to be kidding!!" Well, no actually.

Tim Rutili and his chums have turned in a very fine set
with their new album 'All My Friends Are Funeral Singers',
(apparently the musical half of a two-part project presaging
a film, sharing the same title, which I am led to believe will
burst into the world of vision some time next year).

The fourteen tracks in the collection are a highly varied
and uncompromising bunch of compositions. Uncompromising
does not equate with inaccessible however.

Sure, some of it is a bit po-faced and knowingly obtuse;
opening track 'Giving Away The Bride', whose big beats and
bass whoops reminded me of some of Bjork's recent creations,
is a striking case in point. By which I mean to say I like it!

Other songs are full of infectious good-humour.
The country stomp of 'Ape-Like' is an absolute delight.
So too 'Bunuel', a strangely affecting
tribute to the great surrealist film-maker.

Lots of different instruments feature throughout
the project and contribute to its richly textured
and dynamically divergent moods and atmospheres.

Messrs Rutili, Becker, Adamik and Massarella are
a talented ensemble, no doubt about it.

'Alice Marble Gray' is a small but perfectly-formed
composition.

This is superb, probably the best thing Califone have released to date.

Music journo witterings about how this was their most accessible record yet caused me some concern but I needn't have worried (everyone knows music journalists have cloots for ears)- whilst the songwriting is perhaps more fully rounded than before their unique brand of deconstructed folk-blues remains as richly textured and idiosyncratic as ever.

A definite contender for album of the year.
