Angel Corpus Christie: Louis Louis Gulcher GULCH 601
The last time I reviewed a record by this accordionist, I did not exactly rave about the disc – in fact, as I recall, I was frankly quite disappointed as it turned out to be a lesser record than I’d expected.
Not so this disc. It’s a gem!
It announces itself on the back of the satisfying cardboard cover as being ‘12 songs for by and about Lou Reed.’ And it does exactly what it says on the tin. To be brief – they’re fab. Slightly creepy, slightly weepy and more than ever so slightly weird, the whole album is full of loving tribute to the Great Man. The performance is so leftfield and spot on that I would not have been surprised to see Lou’s soul-mate Laurie Anderson mentioned in the production credits – she was not. I won’t waste my breath – you’ll love this one – go and get it!
