I came across Patrick Wolf and was drawn by the lyrics and the use of interesting instruments and his quirkiness. He seems like someone who so completely enjoys making music and singing the songs - it's infectious.
There's so fantastic songs on Lycanthropy - "A Boy Like Me" and "Childcatcher" - I just had to listen over and over again! Bloodbeat, Pigeon Song and The Wolf Song will nestle down in your brain and make you crave another listen.
I don't think there's a 'typical' Patrick Wolf song - there's a mixture of electro funkiness, folk and rock.
So - if you took Lloyd Cole, Kate Bush, Erasure, Nigel Kennedy and David Bowie mixed them up, jiggled them around about a bit, you may come with Patrick Wolf - or perhaps he is in a Patrick Wolf class of his own. He's obviously a very talented and passionate musician - please can my son grow up to be just like him?!
