Vinny Peculiar - Other People Like Me
Label: Shadbury and Duxbury
Format: CD


Superb ninth album from diverse Manchester-based singer-songwriter, Vinny Peculiar

Manchester's finest singer-songwriter Vinny Peculiar returns with a fine clutch of new material on what is his ninth album. ‘My Generation (I Said Goodbye) is reminiscent of mid period Beatles, and has a vocal style from Vinny that recalls Nick Cave. Former Auteur Luke Haines adds some savage guitar to the track. ‘Judy Wood’ is much calmer and reflective, sounding at one level a lot like Hefner, but also having a middle of the road 1970’s style. ‘A Vision’ is as English as fish and chips, while vocally it is another trip down memory lane. ‘Other People’ has a groovy guitar line that recalls Marc Bolan, while ‘Artrockers’ recollects early decent Pulp and is very observational. ‘Art Thief’ opens with big guitars and has the brash style of the 1970’s New York Dolls, while ‘Square One’ is much softer, very English again and also autobiographical. ‘Christo and Jeanne–Claude’ is well delivered and is like a solid 1970’s Bowie or Cockney Rebel number. ‘Something and Nothing' is a slow burner, melodical and recollects early Divine Comedy. ‘Theme 15’ is a short sci-fi like instrumental, which ends the album in a pleasant manner
