Product Description

Product Description

'Catching More Than We Miss' stays true to Hunt's pop sensibilities but sees a refreshed folky/altcountry edge mixed with The Wonder Stuff's trademark bite. This time round Erica lends her voice to the record (as well as violin) which DJs have mentioned sounds reminiscent of Kirsty MacColl.

I'm a big TWS (The Wonder Stuff) fan and also a big fan of Miles and Erica. Not An Exit was an excellent album (4.5 stars if you ask me) but I can't help but feel disappointed with Catching More Than We Miss.

I've owned the album for a couple of months now and, despite a fair few listens, I've failed to gel with the album. It's just not up to their usual (or his usual) standards. Lyrically it's on the button but musically it's uninspiring. Each time I listen to it I say to myself "you're the record label, which ones are the singles?" and I struggle to find a single track that could've been or should've been a single. I'd almost describe it as a collection of b-sides or tracks left on the cutting room floor from the Not An Exit sessions. If I'm being harsh then I apologise.

Perhaps you should buy the album yourself and post your review? I may be alone in this opinion.

Not An Exit was a brilliant album and was full of hooks and bridges and choruses that made you want to sing along to or play air-fiddle to. Sadly Catching More Than We Miss does just that....it Misses By Miles!

If you own neither album then buy them both and let me know your thoughts please.

With The Wonder Stuff seemingly, for now, mothballed to occasional nostalgia shows, Miles Hunt (and some of the Wonder Stuff alumni) are forging ahead. In the age of the new market, where bands are small businesses instead of employees of abusive record companies that don't know the difference between their arse and their elbow, Miles Hunt & Erica Nockalls from The Wonder Stuff return to recorded duty (aided by Andres Karu on drums), to create an album that is clearly from the same family. If you enjoy The Wonder Stuff - and you should - this album is another fine slice of life from their ongoings tory.

As ever, the things that drew me to the Wonder Stuff to start with twentysomething years ago are still here : a sharp wit, lyrical insight, a passion for life and a vigour, sitting on top of fine melodic abilities and a determination to continue making a racket, because, after all, there's nothing else you can do. At 42, Miles is almost (if not actually) middle-aged, and there is little of the typical mid-life crisis : the themes and content are kitchen-sink dramas, moments of life, snatches, fragments of a life made of kitchens, jumpers, the juggling of finance and balding and guts, all of life, the mundane made to mountains, in some way to cast our lifelong struggles in the context of the miniscule drama of daily life.

Aside from the words, there's the music. I hate to use the words folk-rock : it conjures imges of bland stuff with violins and the usually terrifying jaunty raggle-taggle that scuppered mid-era Waterboys. Here, thankfully, Miles partner Erica adds flavour to the style with the added dimension of beinga one-woman string section.

As a duo, Miles and Erica are even greater than the sum of their considerable individual talents. Hunt continues to skillfully share with us his razor sharp observations of his life, surroundings and the people he meets through his intelligent lyrics, all driven with his trademark foot stamping, hup hupping rhythm. Nockalls' violin is a match made in Heaven, providing the groove, the rush, the melancholy and the sheer beauty that lets each song soar. Her vocals when she duets with Miles on 'Plans in the sky' are beautiful and humorous - no mean feat and will leave you wanting more. An essential addition, not just for those already familiar with Hunt's previous incarnations. Buy the album and see them live - you won't be disappointed.

Track by track
D.W.I. sounds like it should be more impressive than it is,

The rogues biography sounds imposing at first and while not catchy as such certainly sounds like a classic wonder stuff track.

Stay scared stay tuned, sounds like it could have fit on not an exit but his all the bite to the most cynical of Milos writing. Again not the most catchy chorus but a great lively track with interesting lyrical content.

Fill her up & foot down is decent track telling of many a road trip.

Something for nothing would have sounded at home on the suspended by stars album, one of the more rocky songs present and better than I seem to be giving it credit for.

The Test. A largely acoustic track which is Miles through and through.

Plans in the sky, A duet that makes me think of the beautiful south, or maybe the pogues with kirtsy McCall.

Catching more than we miss, is more upbeat and sounds like it was a lot of fun to record and maybe a fun live song.

Head to Head, starts with a an almost soul 2 soul like beat with a menacing fiddle sounds. the menace carries through to the lyrics.

Were you there? Another song that sounds like it would have fit in with the suspended by stars album, not a bad track but sounds more impressive but the lyrics lack the same impact.

Tell your story well. A great album closer that is more atmosphere and insight than a great tune.
