Reverend And The Makers - 'The Wrestler'

A lyrically predictable release

We weren’t expecting Jon McClure to write a song about knitting, baking or falling asleep in the pub toilet, but does every Rev song have to be about fighting? Er, yes. “You are the wrestler/And your conscience pins you down”, Jon sings, like a slightly intimidating Sheffield version of Jiminy Cricket.
