A three song CD from the Devon based band with two studio tracks and one live cut. Every bit as good as their previous Cross Rhythms radio turntable hits, the opening of 'Gather Round' had my complete attention with great guitar and then when the vocals came in I was completely hooked. Lead singer John Prockter has a voice! "Til The End" is also eminently listenable with a great hook and a Manic Street Preachersesque verse. Both these songs are bright, cheerful, melodic and I have repeated them at least five times whilst writing this review. I wasn't so keen on the live track. The sound felt a little dead after the previous two and it didn't feel terribly tight. I will certainly be watching out for Escapade in the future. Oh yes, one thing that may interest the band: Escapade is also the name of an American band who seem to have been around since the early 90's.
