ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Imagine a man in a pink suit, sitting on a box, spluttering Neo-Dickensian rants about being chased by pensioners as he plays a cheap accordian to a band that sounds like The Bad Seeds playing The Jungle Book. Or The Specials playing Jacques Brel. Or The Crazy World of Arthur Brown playing Western Swing on Waikiki Beach. Or The Kinks locked in The London Dungeon with a barrel of ale and Thomas de Quincey's personal stash!

Imagine all these things and more 'cos once you've stepped into their mystical world you'd better be ready for one or two surprises. They are the sound of easy listening ravaged by Punks. They are the sound of folk fondled by lounge lizards. They will amuse and confuse you.

They are Flipron.

This is such an interesting CD. It's like Tom Waits with a British accent singing and Quentin Crisp has written all the lyrics. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

The only words suitable to describe Fancy Blues and Rustique Novelties are, ironically, found only on the album itself. To read the full review, please purchase the album then listen to it in its entirety; make sure to read the lyrics in the cover booklet!
