Lambchop – Nine

I’ve just sorta parachuted into Kurt Wagner’s world via this song. Lambchop to me appear to be the sort of band with a small healthy but hugely committed fanbase (some bands are just wired that way, Wilco for example). Previously I’d imagined a slow moving, countrified (they are from Nashville) cerebral outfit that required a degree in emotive reading to get what they were about. I know I’m wrong and with a huge scatter of albums since 1994 there is bound to be ample variation (ok, I’ve read somewhere else that the Lambchop sound is constantly evolving). ‘Nine’ is taken from a b-sides, rarities retrospective called ‘Tools In The Dryer’ which was released in 2001 and a hugely enjoyable bundle of fun it is too. Displaying endless energy from the outset it combines quirkiness with the bands adept musical adroitness. Perfect for getting you out of bed in the morning with a spring in your step. KD
