Soap On A Rope
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 28/06/2008 19:28:49
I once bumped into Howard Devoto at a screening of some weird-ass film during the London Film Festival. 'Excuse Me,' I said, are you Howard Devoto?' He thought about this for a moment before replying; 'Yes, why not.'
The finest lyricist of his generation, it is a cause of constant frustration that he has barely recorded since the two Luxuria albums of the late 80s. 'Soap' is his crowning achievement; A Song From Under The Floorboards his finest hour (I am angry, I am ill, I am as ugly as sin...). The music hasn't dated in the slightest, in fact in the context of 2008's ten a penny Zane Lowe bands, it's more astonishing than ever - if you were listening to this for the first time today you would throw your carefully accumulated CD collection away in disgust. That bloke from Maximo Park wants to be Howard Devoto so badly it's practically killing him, he's not even Howard The Duck...
