Things Will Never Change [Import]
2009 debut from British singer/songwriter Jon Greenwood. If Bruce Springsteen, Kurt Cobain and the Lemonheads had teamed up for a jam, it'd have sounded something like the Doublecross. With tales of love/hate relationships with women, alcohol, family and friends, music does not get more personal and honest than this. From the dramatic opener 'White Noise', to the anthemic 'October Skies', through to the heartbreaking closing track 'Seven', Things Will Never Change is by his own admission, a collection of "abrasive Pop songs". Recorded under a railway bridge on a shoe-string budget, the album features a plethora of guest musicians, illustrating how friendship and hard work against the odds can truly pay off. Boss Tuneage.
