This new film about Oasis’s glory years is rousing, heart-rending and really f**king funny
Cinerama Lollobrigida Scopitones
Funny that David Gedge's first collaboration with Steve Albini
(on production duties) since The Wedding Present's 1991
'Seamonsters' LP should end up sounding so much like Pulp. But then
again, Gedge's transformation from muscular guitar-wielder to the new
Serge Gainsbourg is pretty risible in itself. Nevertheless,
'Lollobrigida' is a pleasure. A valentine of strings and breathy, vaguely
lascivious vocals, it's charming in all the ways it was obviously intended to be,
and manages to erase the last three decades in a single blow. Track three is
called 'Sly Curl', and has a narration by none other than Sean Hughes.
Curiouser and curiouser.
