I must confess when I saw the wince-inducing pun name of Andy Social and espied his skinhead haircut I expected a selection of slightly embarrassing anarchic punk ditties a bit like those America's Pat Nobody gave us some years back. Instead Andy Sorrenson from Victoria, Australia is a revelation - a top line rock singer/songwriter with a good, gritty voice, good production and an absolute swathe of catchy songs waiting to be heard (this cram-packed CD features 20 songs). My current favourite is "Border" with a minor key lilt with a touch of Eagles style harmony and a deft lilt but elsewhere there are plenty more well crafted songs, lots of nicely ringing guitar and one or two left field production surprises as well. Another fascinating Aussie album deserving of UK exposure.
