Seahorses - 'Do It Yourself' (Geffen)

"Apparently,this was their only album.Guitarist John Squire used to be a member of the Stone Roses.'Do It Yourself' was produced by Tony Visconti(Bowie,Thin Lizzy,T.Rex).That's ironic because the CD does employ somewhat of a '70's sound to it.I would describe the Seahorses as 'advanced serious pop'.I remember seeing their semi-outstanding video for "Love Is The Law".Other tunes I liked here on the CD release were "I Want You To Know","Round The Universe" and "Standing On Your Head".If you dig,say vintage Bad Company,you should like this disc."
A good, soild album

"As I'm sure anyone reading these reviews knows, the Seahorses (an anagram for He Hates Roses) was the band John Squire, guitarist extrodinaire from the Stone Roses started after the Roses broke up. While this isn't near anything the Roses did, it is still a solid, enjoyable album. The rest of the band is very good, too, in my opinion. The singer has a good voice that fits the music, the bass player and drummer are both very good (I am surprised to read the reviews slagging off the rhythm section!) and Squire is Squire. While there aren't as many guitar solos from him as I'd like, his guitar work is still awesome. The best songs are I Want You To Know, 1999, Standing On Your Head, and the jaw-dropping Love is the Law. A really good album...if you're a fan of the Stone Roses or just good British guitar rock in general, check this out."
