Enjoy Your Confusion
Enjoy Your Confusion is a collection of 14 new songs about Bob Bradshaw's usual subjects - identity, memory, communication and the mysterious allure of music. Bob's band in San Francisco, Resident Aliens, was described as 'exhilarating' by that city's Herald, providing the 'soundtrack for many of our memories of San Francisco in the nineties.' Bob's other solo release Some Assembly Required was described by the Herald as 'catchy, haunting' and 'infinitely easy on the ears.' Bob is an Irishman, presently living in Boston. Some reviews of Enjoy Your Confusion so far in 2005: 'Bob Bradshaw offers up a highly original collection of ecclectic songs on Enjoy Your Confusion. He exhibits his deep-rooted Celtic callings as well as contemporary folk/pop sensibilities with magnificant flair. He has a penchant for deep lyrical content, coaxing listeners to really give their ear as he expertly spins his tales of lore. A project that really shines.' Douglas Sloan, Metronome Magazine. 'Enjoy Your Confusion is a consistently strong outing from a man who clearly has a God-given melodic knack and a way with tasty, roots-flavored pop. The kind that never falls out of favor with the discerning.' Tim Peacock, Whisperinandhollerin.com 'With intricate wordplay and instruments as varied as marimba, fiddle and bouzouki, Enjoy Your Confusion is a clear winner. American roots rock and power pop in the style of Elvis Costello are mixed with a Celtic tinge.' Pat Keating, InsiteBoston.com.
