Performer Notes
  • Whistler: Kerry Shaw, Ian Dench, James Topham.
  • Additional personnel: Henry Olsen (bass); Tim Weller (drums, percussion); Fuzz Townsend (drums).
  • Here's a treat. Whistler's sophomore effort finds the British trio continuing where its debut left off, with delicate, acoustic guitar-based arrangements and deceptively sweet melodies that mask lyrics designed primarily to summarize (and thereby forestall) lovers' quarrels. Former disco singer Kerry Shaw now fits comfortably within a recognized genre of wispy English alterna-pop, which is not a bad thing, and the fact that the other two band members are an acoustic guitarist and a violist guarantees that these songs' settings will be a bit unusual. The gently swinging 6/8 meter of "Thank You" is undermined somewhat by James Topham's mournful viola (and by couplets like "Thank you for being the one who died young/After all chances are we won't all go at once"); "Don't Forget Me Forever" centers on the simple but lovely guitar work and harmony singing of Ian Dench; "Watches of Switzerland" actually features electric guitar and drums. For missteps you have the negligible "You and Me" and self-explanatory "Sad Songs." Recommended. ~ Rick Anderson
Professional Reviews
Q (1/01, p.119) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...A very English sound...an exercise in musical fragility..."

Alternative Press (6/01, p.86) - 4 out of 5 - "...Uniquely perverse...lonely tales of loss and demise - perverse because the best songs sound like Simon & Garfunkel with Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen pulling the strings; unique because not many people sound this exquisite anymore..."
