I first heard Tony on Jools Holland's New Year's Eve show on BBC2. Then, he was singing Nirvana's 'This is Teen Spirit' to the accompaniment of a bizarre, though impeccably dressed, orchestra of ukuleles. So when this CD landed on my doormat I knew that I was in the aural presence of a true musical original. Other than that, I didn't quite know what to expect. Sticking it into the CD player though, the rich voice was definitely the one I recognised from TV, though this time it was accompanied by a motley array of other instruments (although Tony's ukulele does put in the odd appearance). With a wry take on musical influences as diverse as Flamenco, rock and easy listening, the lyrics are wittily sung and the tunes melodically played. And the style? Well, the style is uniquely, eccentrically Tony's own.
