White Hassle







Life Is Still Sweet(Orange)









Well this is jolly. It seems to be about trains. Always a safe bet subject wise, trains. You know what this is? This is skiffle - the ugly, misshapen and utterly unlistenable musical miscarriage that occurred just after modern jazz and just before rock'n'roll, But it's been updated for Y2K and guess what? It's not totally shit. Totally pointless, yes, but not totally shit. Of course it's not really about trains, it's more like using the train as a metaphor for 'relationships' and the human condition and dead boring singer-songwriter stuff like that. But it's OK, because it kinda chugs and The Hassle obviously eschew cardigans and stools.
