Rain, Ten Belters & A Slow One. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

When they don’t let you take advantage of your first chance, the second stab at showing the world your words not only has to be taken, it has grabbed, slung over the shoulder and held so tightly that nobody can ever wrestle it of you. It requires love, attention and the spite to spit in the faces of all the detractors and those that dare raise their eyebrows in mock derision and painful excuses; wherever the Rain may fall, is not usually the sign of a flood but of the green and well thought of lawn, of the return of one of Liverpool’s much admired bands.

Rain, Gig Review. Hanger 34, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

Rain may fall, it is inevitable as a hose pipe ban as soon as the Sun comes out of its Spring shell or a whitewash in the media when it comes to glorifying the achievements of any town or city anywhere outside of London, especially when it the capital-centric bogyman city of Liverpool; the slight tinge of jealousy that always emanates from the so called corridors of power and the decision makers who somehow determine what is the in thing to chase. Rain may fall but Rain, even after a quarter of a century, can still taste sweet in the British Winter and Rain is always worth chanting for.
