Another year and another concept album from Luke Haines. Including the North Sea Scrolls collaborative effort, that's four within the past three years. A mythical re-imagining of the New York Rock 'n' Roll scene 1972-1979, lyrically this album is reminiscent of his '9½ Psychedelic Meditations on British Wrestling' album - mostly favourable and sympathetic towards the many people that he sings about but with no shortage of his usual wry observations and razor sharp one liners. Musically, Haines broadens his palette and the synths & keyboards found on his early solo work make a welcome return. Loads of name-checks, including Lou Reed (so good he names him twice and also mimics 1975's 'Lou Reed Live' for the album's cover), Suicide's Alan Vegas, The New York Dolls, Johnny Thunders, CBGB, Max's Kansas City, writer and sometime musician Jim Carroll and even Dorset's very own Cerne Abbas Man. This is the final instalment of Haines' psychedelic concept trilogy and it's the second best of the three, just behind the wrestling one. It'll be interesting to hear what he does next.

Luke Haines latest album, "New York In The '70s", was released on Cherry Red on Monday 26 May 2014, and is the final part of his three part psychedelic trilogy.

The trilogy started with 2011's "9 1/2 Psychedelic Meditations on British Wrestling of the 1970s and Early '80s", continued with 2013's "Rock And Roll Animals", and now here's "New York In The '70s".

If you enjoyed either of the other two albums (my personal favourite being "9 1/2 Psychedelic Meditations on British Wrestling of the 1970s and Early '80s") then it's fair to say you will enjoy this one too.

As always, everything you hear is filtered through Luke's inimitable and original perspective, so this is the New York rock n roll scene (1972-1979) via Surrey, Southern UK. That said, musically at least, Luke manages to uncannily evoke the sound of Suicide, along with Lou Reed and the Velvets, on some tracks, which gives his homage an added pleasure, in addition the listener enjoys references to the New York Dolls, Jim Carroll, Stiv Bators, Alan Ginsberg, Television, and...er...Chico, a messenger bird, and a gigantic mythical 180 foot naked man from a Dorset chalk hill. All of which adds up to another enjoyable album from the wonderful and fertile mind of Mr Haines.

Like most of Haines output these days, it's okay, has perhaps a few slightly memorable songs and the rest unmemorable. Keep thinking 'maybe I won't bother with his next' but keep giving him another chance, as he used to be my number one. Keep being left thinking he's churning out stuff not very good though. I'm getting closer each time...

Not only is Luke Haines one of the most prolific song-writers (and album makers) of modern times, but the man is forever taking us on weird, wonderful and darkly comic trips into his psyche and imagination – having recently 'rewritten’ English history (North Sea Scrolls), as well as weaving magical tales around the likes of 'local heroes’ (British wrestlers, Tony Allen, Suzy Lamplugh, Sid James, Nick Lowe, John Stonehouse, Gazza, Enoch Powell, Peter Hammill, Jimmy Pursey, Gomez, etc) and ‘not so local’ heroes (Klaus Kinski, Yasser Arafat, Gene Vincent, etc). Here, Haines has created an homage – with, in typical fashion, some ambiguity around how far the man’s tongue is embedded in his cheek – to the New York music scene of the 1970s, taking in (of course) ‘sex and drugs and rock n’ roll’, and the likes of The Ramones, New York Dolls, Television, Debbie Harry, Richard Hell and Suicide, as well as the recently demised (and great) Lou Reed – indeed Haines’ own 'painting’ of Reed adorns the cover in splendid fashion (although opening the gatefold to reveal a photo of a bearded Haines 'doing a Reed’ should really carry a government health warning – only kidding, Luke!).

Actually, although once again Haines has only graced us with just over 30 minutes of music (12 songs) I think this is his finest solo effort in a while – for me, musically, surpassing 21st Century Man, Scrolls and Rock n’ Roll Animals – and I don’t think that’s just because his subject matter formed such an important part of my teenage years.
