Recent listening. Hotel Shampoo by Gruff Rhys.

The title reflects Gruff Rhys' hobby of collecting hotel shampoo bottles. A laudable occupation.

Gruff Rhys is the lead singer in Super Furry Animals.  Wales’ finest band by some considerable margin over the last ten years in my humble opinion.  So, what to make of a solo outing?

Total control of the qualkity control button is my conclusion.

More super soft arrangements, quality harmonies, particularly when guest singer El Perro Del Mar (great name by the way) pops up on track 9; Space Dust  number 2.

This is a great pop record with no pretentions to be any more than that.  Wholly recommended.


Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
