We love this record a ton here in the Armellodie stable, we’re sure you will too so don’t be shy, get your wallets oot!
Fronted by Matt Eaton and featuring members of British Sea Power, Brakes, Electric Soft Parade, The Hazey Janes, The Tenderfoot and Thirty Pounds of Bone, the band posses a charming individuality which is both at odds with and wholly impervious to current musical trends. There are not many groups - in the UK, at least - genuinely mining the same seam that gave us Solomon Burke’s ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’, and the Daptone label, for instance. Often funny, often poignant, and beautiful the Pure Conjecture is the panacea to cynicism in a serious world!
"Odd, unique, quite intriguing and something pleasantly different to give a spin to this summer." - Subba-cultcha
""We’ll be making babies together, forever" he says on this fitting closer. Here’s hoping the ‘we’ represents Eaton and his talented bandmates, and ‘babies’ represents albums. An excellent start." - Rocksucker
