Lord Cut-Glass, the solo incarnation of ex-Delgado Alun Woodward, takes his maiden album bow for Chemikal Underground on June 22nd.…

Sometimes bashful, occasionally imbued with curmudgeonly bluster, and yet always lifted by humorous life learned truisms, Lord Cut-Glass strikes a dashing figure of musically inventive bravado. Galloping percussion, waltzes and marches, promenades ... Read more in Amazon's Lord Cut-Glass Store

Format: Audio CD
My album of the year so far, admittedly in a (so-far) quiet year.

I'm probably with the majority of delgados fans in rating Emma Pollock above Alun Woodward. Not that it is or should be a pssng contest. And whilst I thoroughly enjoy Watch The Fireworks (which rocks out a lot more when played live), Lord Cut-Glass's debut is astonishingly good.

Hard to put my thoughts into print, though the headline is that this is a quirky album. Not quirky in the sense of Ween where the listener either 'gets it' or doesn't; more that it is a modern album that sounds like it was made a lot earlier. Think Scott Walker's Montague Terrace from a time when England were World Champions. At football.

Lyrically, Lord Cut-Glass's debut is both clever and cynical; the latter point poignant for most UK residents today. Musically, it is far more accessible than say, Hate; very melodic and somewhat jaunty at times. Whilst Alun's vocals might not be so strong as Emma's, such qualities have never been a barrier to success. Think Blur, where every line of every song was either spoken or shouted.

If the great Peel was still with us, I'd be very surprised if 'Picasso' wasn't at the top of his Festive Fifty this year. This track truly is this good and is especially enhanced by Emma Pollock's backing vocals. The rest of the tracks don't quite reach this standard, though are generally upbeat with clean accoustic guitars and well-arranged strings and horns.

Anyone who shares my disgust with the lack of imagination at Glastonbury 2009; on the TV as I write this: [Neil Young, Springsteen, Madness, Tom Jones B O R I N G] would be wise to check Lord Cut-Glass out. And Michael Jackson? He's dead. Get over it.

If you only listened to the first minute of opening track
'Even Jesus Couldn't Love You', it is just possible that
you might run away in fear.

Lord Cut-Glass (aka Scottish singer/sonwriter Alun Woodward)
does not deliver his best vocal moment in the opening seconds
of his extraordinary, eponymously titled, debut album.

Things get better however. Much, much better in fact.

I am endebted to my Scottish friend Melinda Mallard, a duck of
taste and distinction, whose mission to enlighten me about good
new music from North Of The Border, is very much appreciated.
She continues to come up with gem after gem.

This fine album is another such jewel.

The eleven songs in this collection declaim a highly individual
composer. Distinctively different. Fiercely individual.

The music demonstrates a highly refined musical intelligence.
It also shows us a man with a shrewd and highly droll sense of humour.

I laughed out loud on more than one occasion.
Not least of all with the wonderful 'Holy F***'
The simple accoustic guitar and voice introduction
evolves into a lilting country(ish) arrangement replete
with highly effective staccato brass and (I think) spoons,
all wrapped up in a delicious harmonic vocal arrangement.

The rich variety of instrumentalists featured on the album is one of
its many strengths. Brass, violin and accordion (all present and
correct on the stupendous 'I'm A Great Example To The Dogs') afford
both greater gravitas and a deep folksy foundation to the material.
