Album Review: The Greenhornes - **** (Third Man)

A mind-tweaking knees-up from Craig Fox

Album Review: The Greenhornes - **** (Third Man)

7 / 10 Craig Fox, frontman of this Rust Belt garage trio, could make for a fine lead in a Douglas Coupland novel. Since 2002, Fox’s bandmates Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence have been transported onto a higher plane with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. But Fox has awoken with a jolt of melody-drenched classic R&B, sounding just as gloriously out of time as he did on ‘Dual Mono’ eight years ago. What’s changed, in true Coupland fashion, is that this masterclass in amped-up rock and garage inspired by the best ‘The’ bands of the ’60s will be met with a crowd infinitely bigger than last time thanks to Lawrence and Keeler. A mind-tweaking knees-up in the second-chance saloon for Fox.
