Product description

Amazon.co.uk

The appearance of How We Operate, the fifth album from Gomez will confound those critics who crowed that winning the Mercury Music Prize for their 1998 debut, Bring It On was the kiss of death for these Southport rockers. Eight years on, they’re still toiling – albeit, in a quite different shape to the band that first charmed the UK charts with the weathered blues-rock of ’78 Stone Wobble’. The recruitment of Pixies producer Gil Norton is presumably partly responsible, prompting a new, uncluttered style that sees a lot of the fussier arrangements and everything-but-the-kitchen-sink instrumentation stripped away. Just as important, however, are a fresh suite of songs like ‘Notice’ and ‘Girlshapedlovedrug’ that boast clarity of intention and a straightforward radio-friendliness - two things qualities you suspect bothered Gomez little in the past. Vocalist Ben Ottewell, he of the Tom Waits-meets-Captain Beefheart blues growl, pays a somewhat lesser role on this record – a shame, as he’s perhaps Gomez’s most immediately recognisable element – but he does take the helm for a couple of stand-out numbers, like the Eastern European-flavoured ‘Tear Your Love Apart’. --Louis Pattison
