Product Description

Product Description

Gordon Anderson's recording name signifies the break from his former life. Anderson was a pivotal component of the Beta Band, before fleeing the coop to find a less pressurised environment in Fife. The parallels with Pink Floyd refugee Syd Barrett are innumerable but Anderson is flourishing, not fracturing. Developing the terrain explored on his 2002 Concubine Rice debut, the songs are oblivious of time and convention. The hazy, semi-hallucinogenic beauty is boosted by the lo-fi, not-quite-focused home recording. Anderson's lyrics are full of fuzzily logical observations such as "I won't find my way until I've found my way home", while the melodies are woozily remiscent of the Hollies and the Byrds. A production mess-up means the song titles aren't listed, adding to Schoozzzmmii's uncategorisable, carefree magic. First & second albums now re-issues at midprice.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Those of you who are after something a little wierd, yet extremely wonderful are looking in the right place! I bought Lone Pigeon's debut a few weeks ago on the strength that he is also a member of The Beta Band (Best.Band.Ever), and adored it so much that I bought his follow up straight away (nearly buying it twice in a crazed fit of excitement!). The brilliantly titled "Schoozzzmmi!" sounds like the early Beta records, clever and often funny lyrics, fuzzy acoustic guitars and a wonderful organic sound that almost eliminates any thought of this being recorded in a studio. Even though Lone Pigeon uses many electronic sounds, they sound natural, warm and wonderful, as if they were played on Mother Nature's own synthesizer! There are so many great musical moments that it's impossible to list them all (also, the CD is without a track-listing!), from the genius violin sample of the opening track, to the weird fairytale accent 'Pigeon adopts on the album closer, it's all wonderful stuff. Lone Pigeon is a genius, and although "Schoozzzmmi" isn't quite as good as his debut, it is still completely essential music. If you don't own Concubine Rice get that first, then follow it immediately with this little work of art. Lone Pigeon...I love thee!

This album is magical. To describe it in a few words, I'd go for a pre-school psychedelic Beatles. It's a mish-mash of musical ideas, without much coherent structure, but sounds the better for it. The number of different instruments, with catchy riffs and hooks introduced throughout the album, ensure you're always entertained and the lo-fi nature of the recording gives it an earthy appeal.

'Childish' in the purest sense, it's innocence and playfulness are the work of a mature musician who is comfortable exploring new ideas and is happy to conjure up something different. Either that or they are the doodlings of a madman, cunningly mixed and produced by a re-hab regular. Whichever, the album works and will have you humming "Mr Brown Cow" at the most inappropriate moments. Glorious.

HASH(0x926658b8) out of 5 stars Rich music anatomy 6 May 2008
By Henry Stonehall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gordon Anderson used to be a member of the Beta Band, and his debut solo album, Concubine Rice, was a reminder of everything that was most thrilling about the Beta Band's earliest EPs. His music is fragmentary, peculiar but always deliciously melodic, while his tales of tramps and cows ache with melancholy. Rumour has it that he is considering giving up music to travel across Britain letting animals out of their cages. If he did, we would lose one of our most beguiling eccentrics.
