El Hula : Violent Love EP

Lively stuff...

The new wave of cabaret rock, as practised by Ed Harcourt gathers pace, and El Hula's Blair Jollands joins the ranks of young men aspiring to play in front of a threadbare velvet curtain to an audience of ex-strippers. Lively stuff, as you might expect from one who has had his songs played on Auf Wiedersehn Pet, but were I a rock physician, I would suspect him to have a nasty dose of Babybird, and tell him to snap out of it.
