GALILEO 7, THE - Decayed {Fool’s Paradise} Celebrating ten years of this truly wonderful band, we get an album of 11 covers, a couple of which have previously been released but most are unique to this album. It’s crammed with goodies as always, in particular opener, a very able, gnarled run through the X-RAY SPEX classic, ‘The Day The World Turned Day-Glo’, ROBYN HITCHCOCK’s ‘Kingdom Of Love’, a couple of cracking not-so-obvious WHO covers in ‘Tattoo’ and ‘Glow Girl’ (the latter recorded during lockdown) and a boisterous take on REAL ESTATE’s ‘Paper Dolls’ while highlight might just be a surprisingly raucous take on THE MONKEES ‘Circle Sky’. Elsewhere there’s a bit of JULIAN COPE, PAUL REVERE AND THE RAIDERS and, the only down point, PINK FLOYD (at least it’s a Barrett era track). Lots of fun and kinda points to all I can hear in the band’s own material - THE WHO, ROBYN HITCHCOCK and a splash of Punk attitude. Great band in every way. (26.04.21)
