Pocket Gods - Songs of the Holy Grail and the End of The World
Label: Nub Country Records
Format: CD


Entertaining and often melodic lo-fi pop on fourth album from St Albans-based humorists, the Pocket Gods

The Pocket Gods' latest album has twenty one songs, which were recorded and underproduced at the home of front man Mark Lee in St. Albans. They're sometimes loud with the buzz of a chainsaw, often surreal as well as rather corny (aided by the nonsensical misinformation on the press release), but also ironic and with a gift of melody why they show on a few occasions. A mixed bag of a very high DIY level that doesn't do anything truly remarkable yet will keep you entertained for a while. They are at their best playing the blues, a bit of country music and the odd quiet track.

Track Listing:-
1 The Jesus and Mary Chain
2 Nasa is a lie
3 Here comes Henry Lincoln
4 xylophobe
5 the god particle
6 the fixed asset register
8 the milnsbridge cowboy
