5.0 out of 5 stars Cool slice of Americana, 18 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Serve Yourself (MP3 Download)
In 'Serve Yourself', Phil, Dan, Tom and Pedro have produced (well, self produced actually) a cool slice of Americana via the Marches of England. The title track is a tour de force with a hook you'll find yourself singing for days on end; 'John, You'll Never Be A Heartbreaker' is a beautiful yet tragic tale of unexpressed love; whilst 'God's Given Up On Him' has a saxophone break that appears to be channeling 1970's era Van Der Graaf Generator. Elements of folk, blues and alt-rock suffuse the album with a warm yet melancholic glow which continues to delight on each listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating journey, 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can heartily recommend 'Fire And Wine'. It's a fascinating progress through Steve's career and fully captures the interconnectedness of Folk and Folk-rock's myriad of luminaries; all who have contributed in some way to Steve's musical life. Dave Thompson has managed to convey, with an interesting collection of personal anecdotes, the myriad twists and turns that have been Steve's travelling companion during his colourful journey and the vagaries of life as a 'folk musician' are fully explored in this thoroughly enjoyable read.
