Synopsis

Amazon.com
He calls himself "Robert," but the Willard Grant Conspiracy singer-lyricist is obviously Nick Cave's long-lost twin brother. Imagine him stolen Stateside and reared in rural Massachusetts, host to most of Cave's eloquent sensualism but less of his suicidal romanticism and starchy posing, composer of odes to acrophobia and destroying a house element by element. Tensile strumming on guitars, banjos, and basses underpins each soliloquy, with gradual encroachment from distortion noises like spirits materializing in a haunted house as the sun sets. An album to play indoors in the middle of a cold, rainy day or outside at the dawn of a bright burning one. --Andrew Hamlin

CD Reviews

One of the best of 1998!
Chris Hall | Wyckoff, NJ | 01/16/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Excellent acoustic-based music and songwriting, with a dark slant on life. Perfect for late nights, either alone or with a close friend, and maybe a bottle of your favorite bourbon."
Good music for your lonely moments

"I listen at this cd late at night and i find it marvelous for his athmosphere. I will never be tired to listen the introduction with the violin playing in an interesting and particular way. And all the songs with acoustic and electric sounds are fantastic. Buy it, you will be satisfied"
Great

"I must add also that WGC's newest CD "Mojave" is just as good, with a couple of songs that are absolutely fantastic. I think it's an import-only thing, but well worth tracking down. Even though I'm not in Mass. any more, it makes me think of snowy days... the band (or whatever kind of unit it is) must go through many guitar strings with their vicious strumming. Powerful, powerful stuff."
