Delirious With Weird

Average Man
Turin Brakes

Third single, second album and even Turin Brakes themselves recognise their inherent mediocrity. It’s a brave step, and an endearing one. Five listens in and I can’t remember how it goes though, so it can’t be as good as Painkiller, memorable if only for it’s inspired usage of the word ‘bicycle’ in the chorus. This is similar fare I guess; lead guitars slide after a country fashion, rhythm guitars strum after an acoustic one, vocals are high and quavering and the drums have never seen a dancefloor. It’s very nice, just as Olly and Gale appear to be very nice, but oh! What’s the fucking point, eh?
