Gorky's Zygotic Mynci : Spanish dance troupe

Some would say there's a fine line between madness and genius. In [B]Gorky[/B]'s case, it's a beautiful one.

The truly wonderful Gorky's shame most of this week's releases without even trying. This should make every single suit who had Gorky's blood on their hands this time last year cry into their cappuccinos at its sheer beauty.







There are Spanish-tinged strings, luscious, laid-back acoustic guitars and Euros Childs' gorgeous lilting voice detailing the problems of school life. First, his uniform is three sizes too small, then he's got an essay to write and he's basically left with only one option. Barmy old Euros runs off with a dance troupe from Spain to find love because he's sick of the teachers and it rains in his school holidays. We've all done it, haven't we?
