Felt - The Pictorial Jackson Review LP
Label: Cherry Red
To understand The Pictorial Jackson Review we must acquaint ourselves with Lawrence's original inspiration – Dylan's Nashville Skyline & Friends by The Beach Boys – he was obsessed by short albums full of short melodic songs. A last-minute panic though ended in the dismantling of the track list. Two of the songs that did not seem to fit were replaced with two songs that absolutely definitely did not fit. Logic becomes perverse when panic sets in. Here at last is the original album in all its ten short pop song glory. Concise ‑ minimal – a dash through a built-up area rather than a stroll in an open vista. It's like Vic Godard said – "blind alleyways allay the jewels."
