This is a top quality debut solo album from Ian Skelly that captures the dreamy rich sound of 60's psychedelia. Hints of this were on the Coral's excellent Butterfly House, bonus cd. There is a real depth to the music with stunning vocals. The songs just seem to flow from start to finish and add up to a very enjoyable listening experience.
With brother James about to release his eagerly awaited solo release and hopefully another Coral album not too far off, these are good times for fans of this very underrated band.

Skelly is the drummer with The Coral, one of the more underrated bands of the early-Noughties indie rock boom.

The apple hasn't fallen from the tree, and CFAS is an album of pleasingly downbeat English psych. There are hints of Arthur Lee and Nick Drake and even, on the courtly "Nickel and a Dime", medieval folk. It's unlikely to make Skelly or his parent band less overlooked, but will charm many who stumble upon it.

A truely stunning record - hope The Coral have a new one out soon

The Coral came into being in 1996 amid the frenzied "Brit pop "explosion" hiding in the shadows of Liverpool and the Wirral they are one of those bands who remain invisible but always in sight.

You can't name many of their songs but when you hear them you know them. They have been used extensively by the BBC soundtrack department and have also supported Liverpool stalwarts Echo and the Bunnymen on a number of occasions
So after more than a decade drumming for the Coral and delivering a fist full of top ten albums including a number 1, Ian Skelly has recorded his solo debut, in which he filters guitars, flutes, mellotrons and sharp pop/folk songwriting through a psychedelic haze.

Much of Cut from a Star sounds as if it could have been blasted straight from the late 60s. It has a very Woodstock lucid dreamscape feel to it inspired no doubt by a "Skunk" if you know what I mean.

The sound is not too far removed for the "Butterfy House" it has a mysterious, slightly foreboding atmosphere about it whilst the ghosts of Syd Barrett and Nick Drake shimmy by casting shadowy reflections over pretty pop melodies. This is the kind of album that you listen to in the dark in the moments before sleep each song grabs the listener and sucks them in to another dimension slowly and willingly.
Each song is finely crafted and although you won't be singing along it will leave you thirsty for more the songs that just seem to resonant with deep passion as Skelly drags you in to his Alice in Wonderland subconscious in which invites the listener to get lost in.

This young man is very talented and steering his ship away from the mainstream ports is a good thing but sad because he will go unnoticed by the vast majority.
