Charlie Lankester & The Mojo Killers – Song In A Minor Key (2012)

Posted by on December 15, 2012 with No Commentsas

Last year, Charlie assembled Derek Mandel (guitars), Mark Hawkins (guitars), Dave Cuthbert (bass), Daniel Howard (drums), Paul Silver (saxophone), Gavin Broom (trumpet) and Nick Mills (trombone) and called the group ‘The Mojo Killers’. A new ‘super-group’ was born but a lightning bolt was about to strike.The album starts with a jaunty piano-led, trumpet-blasted ‘Greed’. ‘Drink My Blues Away’ follows in typical blues order, sounding remarkably similar to Squeeze, at its best,, with lyrical humour and wailing guitars. The sixth track, ‘In My Time’ sounds mildly melancholic and could be autobiographical but it pursues well-established blues roots.‘Songs In A Minor Key’, the title track, has shades of BB King about it, although it is altogether more British in appeal, with its crystal clear lyrics and sad horns. All twelve tracks are elegantly composed and performed sublimely. This is an album of great class and disarming honesty and lovers of blues music, of every kind, will find gems in all or most of the tracks.
