Excuse me while I plug Electric Baby Grand again , the first Enormous album on Big Arena Records.
Sales are going very well, but you don’t have a copy, do you Johnny? And neither do you, do you Emma?
So, if you are bored with Britney Spears and have had it up to here with bloody Coldplay, please, for the good of the country, put your hands in your pockets and pop on over to bigarenarecords.com and grab a copy of the stunning debut album by the band of English rogues that Mojo call ‘potential nouveau powerpop colossi’.
Seriously, I would dearly love for you to hear the songs on there, but, more than that, I would really like some of your money.
I can’t resist replicating part of a review of My Type, the Enormous single that was originally released on Beatific Records, as it appeared in Melody Maker.
When you consider my fondness of the two women mentioned you will perhaps appreciate why.
‘Like being locked in a lingerie store with Anna Friel and Catherine Deneuve.’
This, from Mojo magazine, is one of my favourites:
‘Enormous are potential nouveau powerpop colossi.’
Couldn’t have put it better myself.
I’m so proud of some of the reviews Enormous – and Slaughterhouse 5 – have garnered in the past that I thought I might reproduce a few here.
Here is one from the Sunday Times Music Supplement:
‘Pure horn-rimmed pop with brass reinforced hook-lines that don’t let go. Enormous deliver upbeat, soppy, sing-along choruses one minute, then dark Costello-ish verses the next.’
Yep, that’s right: the writer compared me to Elvis Costello, He’s something of a hero of mine, don’t you know.
