Breakfast of Champions
Now here we have a really interesting CD of psychedelic-alt-rock by the equally interestingly named Stuntdog - a band that ply their trade with conventional instruments as well as a mixed variety of 'keyboards'. Electronic alt rock if you will, lots of whispery, breathy vocals nestling comfortably and very successfully within a luxuriant, 'fluffy' electric backdrop. Great sound, great songs, bloody great music! Stuntdog do psychedelic alt rock as good as any band I've come across - they remind me somewhat of Gong, Pink Floyd, Caravan, Soft Machine, Robert Wyatt and many more - (including Nick Drake and Donovan - now how strange is that?) - their music is dynamic yet alarmingly restful, catchy, fun and, probably above all else, elegant! This is a bloody great CD. Stuntdog's music exudes quintessential Britishness; no other Nation does music quite like this - it's really cool and really exciting!! I love the way that Stuntdog don't over-do the electro side of this; this is well balanced utilisation of modern musical instrumentation. All that combined with very impressive songwriting and you've got a recipe for success - these dudes are good!! I'm extremely impressed with this CD - it's not quite what I thought it would be but I'm glad my pre-conception turned out to be a total mis-conception coz Stuntdog are bloody excellent. Yes, seriously, Stuntdog have pressed a button with me, they've reached parts that most similarly ilked outfit fail to reach. Stuntdog have me hooked and ready to reel in. Each track has an identity all of it's own yet each sits beautifully in context with the others. Superb album from a very talented, very innovative band!! Super stuff!! Toxic Pete Wonderfully like Frank..wonderfully like Stuntdog!! Great mixture of mellow and rocky sounds..any more where this came from?
