England in 1819 – Trophy Sixty-One

I can’t really remember the last time I sat through a whole music video (how odd, how positively ADD). Ah well, that’s what you get when you’re spinning a dozen plates above your head, one of which contains a tepid dinner. I can’t tell you exactly what drove me to this feat of concentration, or even why this song from Baton Rouge act England In 1819 held me transfixed, but it has. Not an awful lot happens but it doesn’t need to because there is a sense of atmosphere, a sense that something is about to happen and while it doesn’t quite arrive this is a most interesting journey. England In 1819 are currently unsigned but as their second album, ‘Three Cheers for Bertie’ (guffaw), near completion there may be quite a few chequebooks forming a not so orderly queue outside their New Orleans studio. Sigur Ros team up with Belong as Aled Jones steps in to pull the strings. KD
