Label: Split Records
Format: CD

intro

Unimaginative and over syrupy pop on third album from the Voluntary Butler Scheme, the project of Midlands-based musician Rob Jones


Very neatly packaged, the inner sleeve of 'A Million Ways to Make Gold' resembles 'The Dark Side of the Moon'. The music on the Voluntary Butler Scheme is, however, jolly but messy. At the risk of proving too lighthearted, the Voluntary Butler Scheme drip honey everywhere. After a few tracks the Voluntary Butler Scheme come across as a complete travesty, incorporating the very worst of the Bay City Rollers and the Brotherhood of Man. This is music at its most unadventurous and unimaginative.



Track Listing:-
1 The Q Word
2 Looking for Nearby Water
3 Honey In the Gravel Mixture
4 Brain Freeze
5 That's How I Got To Memphis
6 Quinzhee
7 Believe
8 So Tired (So Tired)
9 No Easy Way Out
10 The Regulatory Reform
11 A Million Ways To Make Gold
