rob clarke and the wooltones

nothing warms the hearts around our gaff better than news from afar of new groove from Rob Clarke and the Wooltones. ‘better times’ finds them in a thoughtful moment, its sweet souring has you pulling up momentarily, fearing your trespassing upon a quiet moment. There’s intimacy and a yearn here, a love note kissed with a subtle sunny and drifting radiance that’s laced with the seductive delay effect of hazy tropical trimmings, its softly turned melancholic burn hinting of the Byrds with a delicately distant nod to the Beatles’ ‘and I love her’ for good measure as refracted through the lenses of a lazy eyed Clock Strikes 13, something all said you might readily expect shyly hiding in the shadows of a youthful kitchenware catalogue. Over on the flip, as typical of these things, the A side completely flipped on its head, here remodelled as ‘what’s on at the club’ which in truth is your Darby and Joan bingo and lounge at the Wheeltappers and Phoenix Club soiree.
