  Eastfield - Roverbrain (Ruptured Ambitions)
By Andy Higgins - Blackpool Rox II ISSUE 10 submitted

I had been meaning to get hold of this CD since last seeing EASTFIELD at WASTED in 2004 so it was fortuitous that I bumped into Jesse during the Pauline Black acoustic set and arranged a trade for a copy of Blackpool Rox II issue 9. I spun the CD on a dismal Blackpool Tuesday morning after the taste of the weekend’s festival had all but diminished, and my immediate thoughts were that that I just wished I had obtained this CD earlier, as it is really really excellent. Mixing West Country accents with dollops of humour, great backing vocals, great production this CD has a really great Blyth Power style vibe to it both in terms of song-writing / construcition and subject matter – trains feature fairly extensively. All 10 tracks on this CD are good – I had a great time reading through and scrutinising all the lyrics. Probably the outstanding tracks are the excellent Fare Dodging and Bury Vic Berry (great doubled up vox on the chorus btw), the insightful Big Brother, and the hilariously prescient Cult of Ted Moult. It is the nearest thing to Blyth Power’s ‘Paradise Razed’ – certainly their best and one of my fave all time albums – that I have heard. Quality (9/10)
