4.0 out of 5 stars Short but perfectly formed, 21 May 2005
This review is from: E.P. Onymous (Audio CD)
Although it features only five tracks, E.P.Onymous still clocks up over 25 minutes of music - not far off some full albums in my collection. Even so, it's all over far too soon. There really is a lot of music on this disc, all played with real brio and panache. The 'big band' folk style is occasionally reminiscent of early Albion Band (if you like the 'BBC Sessions', you'll love this), whilst the prominent horns bring to mind La Bottine Souriante. Fans of the likes of Eliza Carthy, Brass Monkey and 70s Richard Thompson will also find lots to enjoy. As for the five tracks featured here, 'Rambling Sailor' is the most traditional-sounding folk song on display, whilst the instrumental 'Jack Robinson' sounds like a riot in a music shop, with the band showcasing pretty much every instrument they can find. 'Copshawholme Fair' brings to mind The Tiger Lilies with its slightly sinister fairground-style squeezeboxes. 'Rochdale Coconut Dance' is a foot-tapping ceilidh number with some great percussion, and closer 'Prickle-eye Bush' is a very entertaining 'story-song' with a ludicrously OTT brass section that sounds like the beginning of the Star Wars theme tune! In the end, though, this just sounds like a group of talented musicians having a bloody good time. Buy it, and you will too.
