The Doozer - Sheet Music
Label: Pickled Egg
Format: CD


Vulnerably honest, but soon quickly monotonous folk rock on debut album from the Doozer, which has been released on the usually reliable Pickled Egg Records

Sheet music would appear completely useless to a doozer, if you were to ask me. Notwithstanding this, the Doozer releases an album called 'Sheet Music' through that exquisite force in music we have come to know as Pickled Egg Records from Leicester. The Doozer languishes through his songs as if he knows no shame and it's this vulnerable honesty that must have won him a spot on the Pickled Egg roster. On most occasions the Doozer would come across as a street musician with a lot of extra on offer. 'Sheet Music' portrays him to be the lonely folkie that got asked into a studio. The backing band was quite sloppy but the Doozer maintained his stance, thanks to the volume he was capable of producing with his voice and the issues he touched upon. "It's not sheet music but it's OK" as sung in the album's title track just confirms this. The title track marks a stark change as the Doozer seems to have taken in a few lessons here from Robert Wyatt. 'Sheet Music' could be a raw diamond yet the album seemed to me to go on and on and on. Further proof of how the Doozer wanted to meet up with R. Stevie Moore, as so many artistes do these days, is what I thought.
