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. “[i]You are the wrestler/And your conscience pins you down[/i]”, Jon sings, like a slightly intimidating Sheffield version of Jiminy Cricket.
