Artery - One Afternoon In A Hot Air Balloon
One of Sheffield's finest, Artery's first full length album (well, sort of. Oceans was more a mini album/EP) was a radical departure from the bordering on hysterical insanity of their earlier work. Artery's live performances were well known for their intensity, you can see their lead singer thrashing all over the stage on the Made In Sheffield DVD and by the sound of things that was one of their tamer days. So how you do top that? You don't. You go vaudeville. Yes you do. Theatrical, mildly ludicious with it's honky tonk piano replacing the sheet metal like guitars of old....Mark Gouldthorpe no longer thrashing, but treading the boards.
Highly recommended to all.
