Product Description

Surrounded By Mountains is the second album from Pogues bass player Darryl Hunt under the monika Bish. Although The Pogues (www.pogues.com) are always recognised for the quality of their wayward frontman Shane MacGowan's bawdily brilliant songs, they actually have several quality writers in their ranks. Jem Finer, Phil Chevron and Darryl Hunt have all contributed and Hunt's song Love Her Till The End was used in P.S I Love You. Encouraged by this success, Hunt has written ten unassuming, but consistently fine tunes for Surrounded By Mountains. It's his second album under the Bish moniker and it finds him moving to centre stage to sing and play rhythm guitar instead of accepting his customary role on bass. An established team player, Hunt has brought in guitarist Knut Knutson, bassist Bernd Hartwich and drummer Andreas Hohne to establish Bish's group identity. Long-term indie stalwart Debsey Wykes (ex-Dolly Mixture) also acts as a sympathetic vocal foil on several key tracks such as Cynthia and the fuzzy, Velvet Underground-style pop of World Turns Around You. Musically, the album's bittersweet, jangly pop sound is closer to literate indie outfits like The Go-Betweens than The Pogues. Jaunty tunes like Call My Name and Tale of Two Cities have folky, two-step rhythms, but Hunt's gentle, personal songs burrow under the listener's skin on their own terms. Indeed, only the hardest heart could deny the lovely innocence of a song like I Just Want To Hold You. Hunt has a likeably easy vocal delivery. He's hardly a natural frontman, but his laconic voice has a touch of The Lightning Seeds' Ian Broudie and his inherent world-weariness is ideal for break-up songs such as Feel A Lot Better or the acoustic intimacy of Blue Today.
