David Woodcock's debut album is a wonderful thing. It conjures memories of great UK music hall era - but with a sharper pop focus. Think Ian Dury, Madness - even UK Squeeze. Musically uplifting but lyrically it conveys bleaker black humour.
Imagine the collision between the piano pounding pop of Madness and catchy cockney tunes of Blur.
