Groovy Uncle album number seven is here. There are more singers, more instruments and more songwriters. But it’s not all about size; deep down, this album is as introspective in theme as it is bold and brassy in sound.
Oh, and there’s a swipe at one D. Trump Esq. as well.
Where The Love Family explored dissonance between the past and present in last year’s Tracks, The Science Department (Gary Robertson’s other band) have run and run…and run with the theme for their debut.
A couple of weeks back, after seeing the deluge of reviews I wrote for various Medway bands in the space of a single week, Allan Crockford from The Galileo 7 asked me if I’d cast my ears over the band’s latest outing, Tear Your Minds Wide Open.
It would, quite frankly have been rude – not to mention incredibly foolish – to refuse. And so, here it is – somewhat delayed (sorry Allan!). Have a read of the following and then tear your wallet wide open to procure your copy.
