rob clarke and the wooltones

Ah the much-admired Rob Clarke and the Wooltones, new happening thing just dropping entitled ‘jump in my igloo’ provides proof indeed that the lasting legacy left upon the Mersey delta sound scene by the likes of the Stairs and the Coral is very much alive and omni-present. Sounding as though its fell out of a behind the scenes Hunter Davies penned hipster 60’s film set boutique / wardrobe , bedazzled and boogified in a sharp suited n’ booted vintage, this hippy chic shimmer tone buzzes brightly weaving a hip hugging dashing cool that hints of some Spencer Davis Group / Traffic love in whilst primed aplenty in oodles of beat groovy smarts, in short a woozy wiggle-tastic way back machine shoehorned into two minutes and twenty six seconds of turntable flipping tastiness. Over on the flip, what’s becoming the trademark instrumental re-tilting of the lead out track here reimagined as ‘shilling for the gas’ and into the bargain given something of a trip-a-delic Middle Eastern magic carpet refit replete with reverse loops, lysergic riffage and a healthy side serving of freakbeat-ness, does it for us.
