Bobby Would LP#2. Wistful waltz-time psycho-beat for warding off/wallowing in the 2020-21 Weltschmerz. Swelling and smearing the vision of 2018's skeletal rock n' roll heartbreaker Baby, most of the songs here are ballads -- minimalist, ultra-hypnotic but lavishly melodic space-punk lullabies and bright, bruised expressions of jingle-jangle mourning. Highs, lows and heavenly blows. BW's guitar is, more than ever, a thing of fearsome and filigree beauty, moving effortlessly from misty, mellifluous DIY pop-dreams to wailing vertiginous whiplash leads and dazed, epiphanic, angels-wept metha-drone, ringing in infinity -- and tethered to this earth only by his beloved monotone, numbed-out, serial-killer croon. Spinning in its own orbit, but with recognizable dabs -- perhaps -- of Phantom Payn/JG39, Les Rallizes Denudes, Gary War, Peter Gutteridge's Pure... and of course Bobby's own work in Heavy Metal and Itchy Bugger.
