As a member of such semi-legends as the Prisoners, The Solarflares and JTQ, Allan Crockford has played an important part in establishing the Medway area's reputation as a hotbed for spirited, uncompromising garage rock with a strong DIY ethic. Playing with such Medway notables as Graham Day, Billy Childish and James Taylor, his reputation was as the reliable sideman for more flamboyant figures. After finally realising that songwriting wasn't one of the dark arts, he recruited some of Medway's least annoying musicians and formed The Galileo 7 to play some of the songs he had been storing up for a few years. The Galileo 7's sound leans in a more pop-psych direction than some of Allan's previous rougher-hewn combos. If you want a convenient (but probably misleading) label, maybe 'garage-pop' will suffice. If you demand unhelpful and inaccurate reference points before you listen to new music, think late-period Soft Boys, Dukes of Stratosphear, The Nazz and any number of bands who went a bit psych and wobbly in 67 than got back to making pop songs when the stuff had worn off a bit. This new collection covers such subjects as misanthropic
tetchiness, the evils of empty consumerism, anthropomorphised mood disorders and long-dead childhood pets - all in the form of the uplifting 3 minute pop song!
