• madcaps Slowdown (CD, £11.95)

    label: Howlin Banana Records

    The Madcaps continue to gouge out their own particular rock and roll groove while leaving behind the adolescent garage of their beginnings. The pop melodies are still there, but the songs are more stripped down and spacious, leaving room for horns, piano, organs, congas and acoustic guitars, hitting by turn shades of rhythm and blues, soul, country western and even calypso.
