  Tim Fite - Gone Ain’t Gone CD (Anti - Records)
By Blackpool Rox II (Editor) Issue 9 (2004) submitted

I hooked up with Tiim Fite and his brudda at their Manchester show on his debut UK Tour – you can read more about the short time we spent together over some food in a classic Rusholme curry house elsewhere in this issue. ‘Gone ain’t Gone’ is a quirky eclectic album, mixing a variety of different musical styles and confidently bringing them together in an unusual whole is both accessible and excellent , stepping beyond the familiar tickable boxes of straight line thinking about musical territories. Track 3 ‘No Good Here’ is shaping up to be TF’s signature tune, the smooth almost laid back harmony of the song is punctuated by angst ridden bursts of energy and volume. The brief spurts are rather like passing trains almost breaking the silence before they disappear into the distance and all is suddenly tranquil again. I think quite a bit of this is down to clever mixing and accentuation, but hey it worked well on the rekkid and with a bit of digital trickery it worked well live. ‘Forty Five Remedies’ owes as much to hip-hop as anything and reminds me of The Eels in places – smooth, haunting , almost enchanting in an eerie sort of way – I do enjoy variety and anything that helps to transcend monotony in song-writing, and this ditty is a good example of all that . ‘Away from the Snakes’ sounds Tom Waits’ish with some of the most funny lines I have ever listened to – a sort of drunken paranoid self-delusional after-hours lament re the ills of the world - I recollect this track attracting loads of hoots of laughs from the Manchester audience. All the artwork down to the look and feel of the website is really in keeping with Tim and the natural image / persona he projects. The picture he has on myspace says it all without uttering a single word – you get what I mean, don’t you ? If you so desire (and I hope you do) you can check out and listen to Tim’s music on either his own web-pages or on Already looking forward to his new material. (8.5/10)
