Throw Me The Statue – Conquering Kids

Nothing surprises me more than finding out that a band I love have to work a 9-to-5 to make ends meet. Must be a bit soul destroying knowing that there are countless people out there who think you are genius and next thing you’re in a dusty office taking a dress down from a square in a crumpled suit. Ah well, such a cruel world, a world where Scott Reitherman gingerly files a clump of papers while dreaming about what his new record is going to sound like. Hopefully not too different from his current one because Reitherman as Throw Me The Status has crafted a colossus on his debut ‘Moonbeams’. Savvy but not afraid to wear a youthful demeanour it is a excellent addition to the record label Reitherman and his mates have set up (Baskerville Hill Records) down Seattle way. ‘Conquering Kids’ is a song for the Grizzly Bear generation with a slow tempo and a sweet chorus you’ll struggle to sing along with. Somehow I think this temping lark will only be a short term gig. KD
