Water Bully

Bully’s first album, ’Feels Like’ will cut you at volume. Album opener, ‘I Remember’ sets it out like so, with tight, dry drums, punk rock guitars, a mildly psychotic baseline and vocals that…female Kurt? All I can say, is that despite how long it took to finally get a copy into my eager, moist paws, I am very glad to have it with me now. It’s really personal and Alicia Bognanno gets real fast.

Big Damn Billion

‘The Big Lebowski’ has everyone from Dylan to Nina Simone on it and a really beautiful, storming flamenco rendition of ‘Hotel California’ by Gipsy Kings on side two that needs to be played all. the. time and if Paul Mann’s cover artwork never grants him a sainthood then I honestly don’t know what kind of world we live in.

This particular outing is a very people focused affair and also it is a very British thing. That is, it is a body of work that explores the idea of Britishness with a level of satire that is over 8000! The irony of an in depth look at identity in the looming shadow of Brexit isn’t lost on Parr and the Gucci sponsorship might just be the most perfect thing in 2019.

Leila Del Duca’s intrepid Alarm Cat is known as Cassius but he could also be known as Felix. As of January, you can expect my pen to paper for the first official book in the chronicle of ‘Felix The Plagiaristic Musical Cat Hunts Communist Sex Goats On The Moon’.
