MUSIC REVIEWS

Bigmouth-Bigmouth (Wild Pitch)

 

This Birmingham, England by way of New York band has put together a pretty impressive debut album.

 

Catching more than a little reflection of early Elvis Costello, sharing the pop songcraft, blistering guitars and angry lyrics that put them ahead of the pack. An impressive array of styles takes in glam, alt, punk, even a touch of country on "Easily Loaded." The punky "Better Man" takes on the tricksters and hypocracy of the music biz with bitter resignation.

 

Other cool tunes includes the neat fakeout of Nemesis, which starts out as a ballad, but quickly shifts into overdrive. The album closes out with the eerie "I," which the band says is about "the slow descent into madness."

 

I'm looking forward to see what else Bigmouth can pull from up its sleeve. (4/98)
