5.0 out of 5 stars Glue & Smack 23 May 2012
By Rooksby
Format:Audio CD
Dear Lawrence,

Hindsight is a truly wonderful thing, isn't it? I bought Denim On Ice when it came out, played it a couple of times, wrote it off as twee drivel, & didn't play it again for another 10 years. And all because I wasn't listening properly. For this, I am truly sorry.

Denim On Ice, I eventually realised, is a work of demented genius (but "genius" nonetheless) &, though some songs are inevitably better than others, there's honestly not a bad one hereon... Well, apart from "Granddad's False Teeth" maybe? Lyrically, it's not only laugh out loud funny (frequently), but also contains some of the most scathing & incisive observations about 1970s/early 80s Britain that I've ever heard on record, albeit from an absurdist p.o.v. - if there's a more wittily authentic song about being young & unemployed in the early 80s as "Job Centre" I've yet to hear it. Ditto "Council Houses" & it's tongue-in-cheek, yet entirely accurate, disgust at poverty stricken sink estate living. The only other ensemble I've come across who've dissected this period of British life with an equally sharp, lop-sided scrutiny are the long forgotten Sudden Sway, whose '76 Kids Forever I'm positive Lawrence must be familiar with?

On a darker note, having recently seen the fascinating Lawrence Of Belgravia documentary, it's since occurred to me that many of the seedier lyrics hereon - Godawful scenarios of mishap-strewn junkie (low)life & so on - might actually be semi-autobiographical, & that's a very disturbing prospect. Though some of Denim On Ice reiterates the subject matter of it's oft-celebrated predecessor, 1992's Back In Denim - 70s kitsch, inane Eurovision pop, the punk-era music press - much of it touches on something far more squalid & low-rent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Uplifting Album 13 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
I am truly shocked to see that this album has only achieved a 2 and a half star status so far. I find it one of the most uplifting albums in my collection and have been trying to find Denim on Fire in the hope that it is as entertaining as this. Anyone?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beach Boy Madness with a Modern Twist 1 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
Agree with the other reviews on here. This is Denim's best album by a long shot. They are really starting to throw off the Beach Boy influence here and you get a more flavoursome mouthful of Lou Reed influenced psychodelia, and nostalgic electronia.

It sounds a bit lo fi now (dated?), but surely that is part of the charm of Denim? Still this was before commercial succeess came their was with Go-Kart Mozart and broke them up.

If you are interested there is a documentary being made about Denim that has been in production for 13 years (unlucky for some).

Best track is the Great Pub revival, and Fish and Chips.
