Shoot Me Down...
This was released on 13th November, 2006 and, honestly, it was so dull, I forgot all about it, what with the Christmas festivities and all. I'm sure you can still get a copy in a bargain bin near you.
RICHARD ASHCROFT- Why not nothing?/ Sweet brother Malcolm
A legend to many people, Noel Gallagher just one of them (blah blah blah), Richard Ashcroft is possibly responsible for some of the best songs to come out of Britain in the last decade or so. And these two songs are what you might expect from the man these days. Take that how you will. Although not a shining example of said talent, this double A-side is certainly a grower; the stomping Primal Scream/ Stones feel of "Why not nothing?", all big horn sections and swaggering cool, contrasted by the slow and rather depressing acoustic offering "Sweet brother Malcolm" perhaps a reasonable taster of his latest album "Keys to the world". That said, I'm pretty certain I'll not be rushing to buy it. Although it appears to be selling quite cheaply, if you know what I'm saying. Dig deep, kiddywinks; I'm sure it's in there somewhere.
This was released 4th December, 2006. Huzzah.
