recently released debut album from Baxter Dury, _Len Parrott's
memorial lift_. Baxter is the late Ian Dury's son and he's produced
a really encouraging debut, all trippy psychedelic pop, kind of an
English version of the Flaming lips. There's also hints of 'vaudeville'
on there as well, sort of Small Faces style. Norman Watt-Roy
plays as does the keyboard player from Spiritualized, whose name
I can't remember. In common with his dad, Baxter's not the
strongest vocalist in the world, so expect lots of voice effects. Still
it's a good record, he certainly hasn't opted for using his fathers
fame to further his career.
