• coronet blue Welcome to the Arms of Forever (CD, £9.95)

    label: laughing outlaw

    Sydney-based former singer of The Lonely Hearts, John Rooney was working in Canada and decided to make the follow-up to CORONET BLUE's self-titled debut album which was released back in 1999. Welcome To The Arms Of Forever combines the classic sounds of '60s pop music (from both sides of the Atlantic) with the influence of contemporary artists who've gone back and realised what an extraordinary template much of this music is. Think The Zombies. Think Calexico. Think Scott Walker. Think Todd Rundgren. Think Dwight Twilley. Think the Left Banke. Think the Magic Numbers.
