4.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre and brilliant!, 4 April 2010
This review is from: Wicked Ivory (Audio CD)
This is the first solo album from Wigwam's Jim Pembroke, alias HOT THUMBS O'RILEY, and actually features all the Wigwam guys Pekka Pohjola, Jukka Gustavson, Ronnie Österberg, Mats Hulden, Måns Groundstroem. Originally released on vinyl by Love Records Finland and Charisma UK in 1973, now available on CD from Love, this is a truly bizarre and mind stretching creation. Pembroke takes on the role of Hot Thumbs O'Riley, the MC in am imaginary music bar with an evening of various singers, all of them actually Pembroke, doing brilliant songs such as "Currently Cheesing", "Warm Rumours", "Grass for Blades" and more. There is nothing else in the world like this album and it stands apart with such classic and unique albums as Van Dyke Parks - Song Cycle and Sounds of North American Frogs. Essential for fans of Wigwam, Beatles and Bonzo Dog Band.
