Song of the day – 226: The John Steel Singers
Mess And Noise asked me to review The John Steel Singers album.
I never make my mind up before hearing something, but I wasn’t really expecting to like Tangalooma. Too perky, thought I vaguely. Too Triple J, thought I vaguely. Too upbeat and anodyne and in thrall to Sydney and the fashions of the day, thought I vaguely. I was wrong. I like Tangalooma a whole bunch, the same way I can admit to a fondness to 10cc these days without blushing.
I’m glad I never make my mind up before hearing something. Well, rarely.
Amazing how styles of music criticism can vary so greatly, isn’t it?
