& the Horse You Rode in on
Rock's bread and butter is romantic tragedy. It has i nspired pity and poetry, rage and redemption. The latest record from Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, takes all those elements, mashes in a little Jarvis Cocker swagger, and spreads on some THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT-era Jam and emerges with something new, crisp, compelling, and incredibly intelligent. Sure, they rock, but they also read. Spin calls Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, "a hug for the downtrodden," and it's true a rollicking, dance-your-ass-off, cry 'til you can't cry anymore hug. Breakups are tough, and life never gets any easier.
