Item Description
Forget 24 hour bingeing , raucous antisocial behaviour, even the gin-soaked balladry of
The Band of Holy Joy or the likes of Eazy E , The Beastie Boys and Schooly D singing
the praises of their favourite brew. Matt Elliott emerges shyly from the shadows of
Third Eye Foundation alias to celebrate the drowning of sorrows rather than the
exuberant pissing away of our leisure hours, Introspective and alone, breathing in the
fumes of some neglected cellar, his drinking songs withdraw themselves not simply
from polite society but from all society. How else can one dream or contemplate what
might have been? Opener "CF Bundy" has a woozy charm . Evenly paced and alive with
the strumming of acoustic guitars, it sets the mood for what is to come. Evoking the
regrets and indiscretions of a bygone age, one grown sick and enfeebled by fantasies,
"Trying to Explain" , "The Guilty Party" and "What's Wrong" would all seem to be
taking place in a world teetering on the edge of some great fall or cataclysm. "What
The Fuck Am I doing On This Battlefield?" and "A Waste of Blood " are both moments
of rude awakering. As a coda and extended finale, the 20 minute " The maid we
messed" sees Elliott returning to the worldplay and hypervelocity breaks of his Third
Eye Foundation recordings. Overall, however, Drinking Songs remains a work to be
listened to with eyes closed - it's about the only way you can keep the room from
spinning.
