A nice little blast from the past

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Ok, in the early 90s such English bands like Happy Mondays, Blur, Stone Roses, The Charlatans etc ruled the roost. There was a whole second tier of the so called "Manchester" sound (I take some liberty here by grouping bands on sound not city) encompassing groups like The Wendys, The Farm, The Dylans, Northside etc etc.
A neatly produced little gem by Ian Broudie, Gobbledygook has some great tracks. It's easy to get lost in the blissed out drumming/guitar strumming of "Pulling My Fingers Off". "Sun's Gonna Shine for Me Soon" is a sweeping longer track. The jangle is especially interesting in songs like "I Want You and I Want Your Friend" and my favorite album track "Half Pie".
If you like the Stone Roses and The Charlatans, beginning your exploration of second tier Manchester with The Wendys is a great choice, especially for 33 cents."
