ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
All I can say is "Wow!". Since receiving the LP Beat Manifesto for review
I have played it constantly. What caught my attention immediately was the
driving bass lines, very reminiscent of one of my favourite bass players;
Les Pattinson from Echo and the Bunnymen. At times I wondered about the
singing, was he trying to sound like David Bowie or was it his natural style?
Then I thought "who cares, it's great either way".
There is not one song that lets this album down, just buy it, trust me.
We don't usually give scores for albums at Muzic but if we did,
this would be 9/10. Nice!

Happily placing tongues in cheeks they seemingly rattle through a dozen angular oddball 80's dope-party tracks recalling
thumb-holed cardigans, Bowie posters and Flying Nun fliers.Space-age synths underpin McShane's shout-sung vocals...
Listen to the album again and realise you're singing along .Standouts are the New Wave Bowie-style You're Gonna Get
There Too and the blindingly catchy Cause Ya Said So .

Beat Manifesto is clever and quirky and damn, there are some fine tunes here. It's all so familiar - and yet you don't
know any of these songs, even though Down Down Down, Lost In The Herd Again, Because Ya Said So and
Happy Pills all feel like songs that should/could have been hits.
There's a touch of PiL to the vocal - though not quite as abrasive, never ever as antagonistic and though I'm not sure
about the authenticity of McShane's motives (if that even makes sense - hell, what the fuck is authenticity?)
I've found myself slipping into this album after reservations initially. It's so easy to play again and again.
It's a bloody good car album.
