It is an intensly personal and intellectual record,which is perhaps David J.'s defining principle. The songs are excellent, and the arrangements eclectic.
The lyrics are unparalled throughout. They are far more well wrought than you would expect from a pop record.
From a purely musical point of view there is a magical juxtaposition of complex jazz phrasings and punk simplicity, coupled with a delicious rawness of texture. Words fail miserably, just buy it!
The substantial booklet notes by David J and Andrew Brooksbank are top-notch stuff: detailed, full of unknown anecdotes. The booklet also features memorabilia, singles art, photos, and is beautifully designed. The discs have the silver on black lettering and light bulb, and someone has even bothered to ensure the rear packaging inlay is the same red colour as the inside of the cover of the original first-pressing of the LP. A really outstanding presentation by someone who obviously knew what they were doing, and it's much-appreciated by this long-term fan.
CD2 is a packed, well-sequenced and unprecedented journey through alternative versions of known songs, known rarities, a beautiful out-take, and best of all, the 1979 home recordings, electronic drones and industrial noise with David's voice and recitations, great and sinister stuff, coming on like Eraserhead Lynch vs David J vs Amon Düül II.
Never stub out the dog-end of these Northamptonian days gone by, and tell your friends about David J, one of the most compelling British artists of the last 35 years.
