Product Description

Second solo album from Men They Couldn't Hang vocalist Philip ('Swill') Odgers sees the full bloom of the down home style of last year's critically acclaimed debut, 'The Day After'. Featuring an unique hybrid of Americana, UK folk, Celtic rhythm and classic Pop, all topped by Swill's legendary, resonant vocal style, this is a fully realised excursion into the roots of a career that spans 22 years. Recorded, as before, with a collection of friends accumulated after half a life on the road, 'Elvis Lives Here' contains co-compositions with the likes of Robb Johnson, Attila The Stockbroker and Paul Simmonds alongside a welter of Swill originals. From accapella to instrumental, from the epic balladry of "In The Breeze" to the small town observation of "Shed Fire", the album creates a new kind of genre with its intimate fables of a local kind of life.

Having been a fan of The Men They Couldn't Hang for over twenty years now, i was looking forward to Swills 2nd Solo Album. 'Elvis lies here' is a refreshing collection of up tempo and thought provoking songs. Different from 'The Men' with a much more mellow flavour, but still having that bite. The Title track will have your toes tapping and other noteworthy tracks are 'Shed Fire' written by Attilla but given a Swill makeover, the fantastic 'Marjory and Johnny' which sung a capella has a real impact!

If you remember 'The Men' from before (and they're still going strong), then this album will not disapoint

been a fan of all things TMTCH/Liberty Cage/Ogders & Simmonds & Swaggerband for along time.

Quite simply this is a great album with not one bad song or filler in sight!! The tunes and melodies quickly become etched into your pscyhe!!

stand out song at a push is the incredible accapella "Marjory & Johnny"

Well done Swill & the Swaggerband!!!

Been a fan of TMTCH for longer than I care to remember. Swill has one of the finest voices you are likely to hear.

Songwriting and musical craft at it's best.

Buy this CD!

Another marvellous addition to the ever expanding TMTCH related catalogue - we will need a larger shelf soon there is so much of it, all brilliant and this does not let us down. A must for any discerning TMTCH fan everywhere, if I didn't already have it I'd buy it now!
