Ha ha” when discussing Hitler and the Nazi movement.
No amount of apologies could ever wipe that off the record.
And I have to say (as I have before) that’s it no good simply writing Hawley off as a peddler of pastiche.
It’s true that he’s fairly faithful to song structures often associated with the country and western and rockabilly genres.
Frankly in need of restructuring were second band up, Maps, whose tedious form of electronica (not helped by very under mixed vocals) was ill chosen for the occasion, and frankly far better suited to a funeral parlour. Which leaves the triumphant Mr Hawley, with his very precise and quite excellent band, his lovely Gretsch and Gibson hollow-bodied guitars, and his shiny suit and his well-waxed quiff.
And the guitar playing, both Sheridan’s and Hawley’s – the latter far more forthcoming on the fret board than he had been at last year’s Roundhouse gig - is as clever and contemporary as it can get.And as a result of our unfortunate experience in the Astoria balcony you can expect more campaigning to come from Whiskyfun as we frame and shame the selfish bastards intent on ruining music lovers’ evenings out in our new ‘War on Wankers’ page that’ll be coming this way very soon. Well, we’ll never know and maybe it was all of that but anyway, Hawley was so good that even that infernal trio of wankers didn’t manage to spoil that marvellous London/Sheffield evening. Music to listen to: Vince Vincent’s My Space page – Richard Hawley’s My Space page. This HP starts very grassy, oily, smoky and delicately yeasty, truly in Highland style. Mouth: sweet, clean, fruity (cider apples), delicately honeyed and smoky. Only drawback: you may down this as if it was apple juice. Nose: this is what sometimes happens when you’re trying ‘close colleagues’ head to head: they can be just the same whisky. And I confess I was also somewhat seduced by the fact that band leader Crispian Mills was the son of British child acting prodigy Hayley Mills, whom I have to admit I had a bit of a crush on after seeing films like Whistle Down the Wind, In Search of the Castaways, and That Darn’ Cat (all seen in that old and now long-gone cinema in sunny Bedworth, the name of which now escapes me), and even more so after I (and the rest of the world) got a glimpse, a few years later, of her bottom in The Family Way.Goes on with whiffs of burnt heather (that dirties your pants when you’re walking on it, would say my friend Olivier) and gets finally slightly ginger and porridgy. Finish: medium long but very clean and pure, with the oak’s pepper making a late but pleasant arrival as the signature. That’s the case here, this Samaroli being maybe just a tad more buttery. So it’s hot flushes all round when we take our seats in the front of the balcony (we’ve arrived early for once) only to see Hayley holding court to family and friends in the reserved seats just to our left. You may wonder why Kula Shaker earned the tag “the most reviled band of the 1990s” which still hangs over them like an albatross.So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections.Auf My Beatport können Sie Ihren Lieblings-DJs und Labels folgen, damit Sie nie die Veröffentlichung neuer Titel verpassen.
