Who'da thought Blighty's most provocative new country stars would be holed up in Brighton? This six-piece have already been hailed in some quarters as natural heirs to Lambchop, but there's much more besides. "Her Friend The Rain" and "Living And Dead Singers" (BJ Cole on lap steel) weld '70s Cali-troubadour strum to Clifford TWard's bedsit folksiness, while "Elephants" dissolves into an acid-carousel waltz that's as unsettling as Johnny Dowd.

Caramel Jack – Performs Songs From Low Story

Who’da thought Blighty’s most provocative new country stars would be holed up in Brighton? This six-piece have already been hailed in some quarters as natural heirs to Lambchop, but there’s much more besides. “Her Friend The Rain” and “Living And Dead Singers” (BJ Cole on lap steel) weld ’70s Cali-troubadour strum to Clifford TWard’s bedsit folksiness, while “Elephants” dissolves into an acid-carousel waltz that’s as unsettling as Johnny Dowd. The diversity is mind-spinning?country-folk to chamber-pop to burlesque with hip hop beats?and singer Joe Doveton a genuine find.
