Product Description

Second album from the Sheffield band. This release follows on from their successful debut album, entitled 'The State of Things' and contains the single, 'Silence Is Talking'.

Amazon.co.uk

Best known for a connection with hometown pals Arctic Monkeys, Jon ‘Reverend’ McClure and his Makers finally offer tricky second album A French Kiss In The Chaos. Since 2007’s The State of Things McClure has threatened retirement, offered out the entire political class and given away an album (by his other band Mongrel) with a national newspaper. Given such distractions the follow-up is unsurprisingly somewhat mixed. Highlights include "Silence Is Talking", a proper indie disco stomper, with a pounding bassline and a nagging horn hook lifted from War’s Latin-funk favourite "Low Rider" and the excellently titled "No Soap In A Dirty War" which borrows a few lines from the Only Ones’ lost classic "Miles From Nowhere" and turns a break-up song into something unexpectedly gleeful. "Hidden Persuaders" is little more than a clumsy lesson that consumerism isn’t necessarily good for you (Jon McClure picked up the nickname ‘Reverend’ for his preachiness, after all). But "Professor Pickles" is straightforward psychedelia, all wheezy organ and slamming snare, "Long Long Time" is a sparse piano-led ballad, nearer to Richard Hawley than Alex Turner while BNP-berating "Manifesto/People Shapers" starts harsh and ends sweet. The closing "Hard Time For Dreamers" gives the game away--McClure voices his fears of war, a Tory government and rising sea levels like, realising that when the Smiths sang about death by double decker bus, they really feared a nuclear holocaust. A French Kiss In The Chaos is inconsistent and sometimes frustrating, but its quirky charm is irrepressible.--Steve Jelbert
