5.0 out of 5 stars CAPTAIN PUGWASH SETS SALE FOR POWERPOP HEAVEN, 30 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Jollity (Audio CD)
Head Pugger Thomas Walsh is a man in thrall to ELO, late period XTC, The Beatles and Roy Wood. This record is a classic collection of harmony driven, snappy powerpop and lovely ballads. There are no fillers. The sound production is lush and the orchestral arrangements, by Dave Gregory, perfectly realised.
Mr Walsh is an erudite lyricist with an ear for a captivating melody and a knack for writing chorus's that simply lodge themselves in your brain and won't let go (very Neil Finn in places). He possesses an expressive voice pitched somewhere between Lennon and McCartney, with a hint of Skylarking era Andy Partridge, and knows how and when to employ seductive vocal harmonies.
Released on the small indie label 1969 Records, Jollity was sadly overlooked on its initial release in 2005. Do yourself a favour and hunt it down - if you like your pop/rock with brains, melody and big big hooks then this long player will be a revelation.

Highlights - The Beachboys like 'Nice To be Nice', The Oasis with A Levels 'Something New', the Beatley 'This Could Be Good', 'Poles Together' and the magnificent Andy Partridge co-write 'Anchor'.

See also '11 Modern Antiquities' and 'Earworm'.
