I have to admit to finding the new album very hard to like. His slurring vocals are obscuring anything interesting he might have to say.

Mind you, I recently found myself warming to Sub-Lingual Tablet from 2015 more.

But then you listen to Hex, or some old b-side like "I'm Into CB" and there's no comparison between the pin-sharp, scathing humour of those records and what he's put out over the last 10 years. Plus the band is no patch on the Rileys, Scanlons and Hanleys of years ago - they're mostly playing on Brix's new records instead.

I've only played the new one once I think. Need to give it some welly!

I wouldn't be so harsh on the new band though. Last time I saw them a couple of years ago, they were great. Had a beer with MES afterwards. I clearly caught him on a good night cos I had a great laugh!
