The Broken Family Band - The King Will Build A Disco
Arising from the ashes of unloved indie-rockers Hofman comes a bird of far more promising musical plumage. When songwriter Steven Adams took himself off to Austin, Texas, he came back a changed man, and with a 10-gallon-hat full of wonderful, fractured, off-kilter alt.country compositions that sounded like Will Oldham might if he'd been born in Brixton. A full Broken Family Band album will follow in 2003, and on this showing it should be a stunner.
