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 '9 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.

this album took a few listens to really get under my skin but its well and truly imbedded itself in my brain. Up there with the best of Luke Haines' work. A short album but once you've had to listen to every song again as soon as its finished it lasts twice as long! I recommend watching Lukes brief introductions to each song on youtube just to give a bit of background. I have enjoyed all 3 of the concept albums (and the north sea scrolls) and can't wait to see where he goes from here
