Larrikin Love - Freedom Spark - Cd
Top Customer Reviews
But don't get me wrong, Larrikin won't tickle your ears, they'll lick them, and suck them until you can't take anymore, and just when you think you are going to explode into a mess of red polka dot scarfs and skinny jeans they stop. And start all over again!
I've had the joy to see them live, but even though staring into the back of hundreds of like minded revellers, I've come away knowing that these floppy haired londoners have stolen my heart and my ears.
If you liked The Libertines when they were at their best, you've always played your Dads old Ska LPs and you think that a dash of folk is actually quite cool, then buy this album. I defy you to not jig around your living room like a crazed fool!
I think the album signifies an important change and shift in the priorities of the indie music scene. A movement from the decrepit and decaying focus on urban life, to the pastoral idyll and joy of the countryside; this representing the clear influence on Edward Larrikin, the lead singer and songwriter, of romanticism. Clear examples of this influence can be seen such as, 'send my love to the city, for I'll be having an affair this summer' and 'to prance and dance and sing around, which is not condoned in the centre of town'. However, the clearest example being the song entitled 'Little Boy Lost', not on the album, but a great song of theirs nevertheless; this song being the title of a poem by the romantic poet William Blake.
It must be said that it is not merely the lyrical content to the music, to which should be applauded. The lyrics are couple with jinky Irish influences, and the site of a violin or fiddle is not unknown by any means. These pogue-esque beats are what give the music its popular appeal.
When these beats and jigs (their words, not mine) are coupled with the romantic lyrics, as well as the charisma of Edward larrikin and the vibrancy of live performances, it is only able to see this band establishing a mainstream audience.
The highlights have to be `Happy as Annie', `Downing Street Kindling' and `Meet me by the Getaway Car'.Read more ›
It is a great album, filled with several moments of inspiration, notably on the best tracks- Downing Street Kindling, Happy as Annie and Edwould are the stand out tracks which combine edgy guitar riffs which although inspired by indie seem to sound somewhat more open and more free, with a penchant for Morrisey-esque lyrics and pete doherty sounding delivery.
'Everything that i adore, came well before, 1984'
Edward Larrikin(probably not his real surname) also has lyrics which touch upon many the romantic visions of Albion that the libertines did-
'Well I would lie on pebbles lavishly but London's pebbles are dirt'
Although there are one or two songs which are no more than album songs, and the exclusion of the Brilliant demo song little boy lost(find it, get it!)is inexplicable, as well as Calypso,the album is overall a great listen.
Although i write as if Larrikin Love are covered by the sum of their influences, they manage to make a sound that is more than unique enough to stand up on its own, and that makes thisa great album, one of the better indie albums of this year.

I can't believe this is so cheap. Great album. Reminds me of the 2000's indie wavePublished 24 days ago by Kevin Lake
This is the only album from a band which split up on the cusp of fame. It is brilliant - there are no really, really weak tracks and many outstanding ones. Read morePublished on 7 April 2008 by Avid
it took me a couple of listens to really get into this, but now i can't stop playing it. I agree with the previous reviewer here, they are nothing like the libertines. Read morePublished on 3 Jan. 2007 by D. Anderson
