el goodo

We lifted this off the Shindig website, new thing from El Goodo, really has been way too long since they last troubled these pages, that said easily forgiven when you realise they haven’t been putting their feet up and spending their royalties and advances and into the bargain forgetting their fans, instead they’ve been busy hatching nuggets in the studio much like ‘sit and wonder’ as it happens. This has some flair and gusto, the sound indelibly soaked in a 60’s classicism the likes of whose creative reach we’ve struggled to hear since the days of Ooberman. All at once stirring, dramatic and hazily hypnotic, if we here didn’t know any better we’d have hazarded a guess that it was borne of a secret studio alliance that had for just one special night found Love in cahoots with both the Left Banke and the Zombies under the watchful arrangements of Ennio Morricone. Certainly the best thing we’ve heard of its ilk around these here parts since the Hanging Stars started dropping gems aplenty for sheer fun.
