Title - Hits To Spare
Artist - The Poppermost

For those unaware, born out of a one-man mission with his roots firmly planted in all things Fab, head Poppermost Joe Kane has gone the whole hog by recording his own music so in thrall to his idols as to be genuine rather than pastiche.

Utilizing an array of FAB instruments, microphones and recording techniques, all glued together by bargain basement analogue junk, shitty is pretty, says Joe, your innermost Fab Four desires will be sated by an affected Lennon-like You wanted the werld and I gave you the werld here, a woody McCartney bass-line there, and a multitude of 12 string chiming George middle eights, with everything held in place by a Ringo-perfect compressed backbeat.

1. Egg & Chips
2. Yes Itís True
3. One Of Those Gerllss
4. Canít Take That Away
5. Call To Me
6. Goodnight Georgia Peach
7. Cry For Another
8. Hits To Spare
9. In & Out
10. Get It Down
11. Laziest Fella In The Realm
12. Park And Ride
13. What A Wonderful Love
14. Well I Will

This vibrant, historically-imbed album opens on (possibly) take 78 of the gently rambunctious Egg & Chips and the jangly hipsway of Yes Itís True, and backs those up seamlessly with the harmonica-led One Of Those Gerllss, the melodically structured Canít Take That Away, the drum-led, mid-tempo ballad Call To Me and then the layered harmonies of both Goodnight Georgia Peach and Cry For Another are brought forth.

Next up are the classic rock íní roll vibes of the day found within both the title track Hits To Spare and the finger-snapping In & Out and they are in turn followed by the driven interplay of Get It Down, the upbeat foot-tapper Laziest Fella In The Realm, the traditional pop sounds of both Park And Ride and What A Wonderful Love, with this exciting new album closing on the rhythm and blues of Well I Will.

In truth, thereís a song for every occasion on this record. Short, sweet and exactly as they used to make Ďem, Hits To Spare does exactly what it says on the sleeve.

Like all the best albums, itíll have you waiting impatiently for the needle to slide across that dead-wax at the end of side 2 so that you can flip it over and play the LP again!
