Simon Love’s pottymouthed pop is just the tourettes-ticket to compensate for our rotten excuse for a summer. ‘The New Adam and Eve’ is guaranteed sunshine in a seven inch single, 60s- influenced string driven pop that balances misanthropy with a welcome dollop of humour. Flip it over for Simon’s cover of Noel Gallagher's ‘Married...With Children’, which was rightly consigned to the very end of Definitely Maybe and is here played in a tongue in cheek style partly borrowed from the theme to Grange Hill. The “Roogalator” call (hopefully an homage to the great 70s pub rockers) is just an extra detail of genius. This is the spirit of Harry Nilsson reincarnated as a tuneful jester from Cardiff.
