The ‘Burn – Sally O’Mattress

Noel Gallagher-endorsed Blackburn quintet deliver strong debut

Trending Now

The Oasis supremo was so impressed by The ‘Burn that he signed them up as a support band before they had released as much as a seven-inch single. Sally O’Mattress is a highly accomplished rock album with some unerring Oasis similarities (just listen to “Steel Kneel”back to back with “Fade In/Out”). However, “Calling All” and “Both Faces”are wonderfully vibrant and first single “Drunken Fool”is the sort of jangly folk-rock that Starsailor would die for. It’s nothing that you haven’t heard before, but no less enjoyable for it.
