closet-folkie What's in your CD player - Winter of '06 (69* d) RE: What's in your CD player - Winter of '06 09 Feb 06


"And a fine new CD from Mudcatter "Closet-Folkie" aka Steve Robinson. If there were such a thing as "Neo-retro" folk-rock music Steve nailed it. Some of the songs would not have been out of place on an early Beatles or Hollies record. One song { Goose Flesh } even reminded me of "Pet Sounds" by the Beach Boys. AND he recorded it in his living room."

Wesley S, thanks for the kind plug. Would you mind if I took the "Neo-Retro Folk-Rock" tag and ran with it? Brilliant.
It's funny, I've heard the Graham Nash/Hollies comparison a few times and though it's not at all unflattering, I never really thought of him/them as influences. It could be worse--one radio guy said that my stuff made him think of Herman's Hermits(I've since forgiven him)
You're right about "Gooseflesh"; it's a bit of a nod to Brian Wilson(ok, a lot). If anyone else fancies a listen to it, it's at the link below.
By the way, my current listening includes Pete Yorn, Ron Sexsmith and plenty of John Shuttleworth.
Cheers then, Steve R.
