Peter Crabb-Wyke of Folk London
reviews Sounding Now by The ClaqueThe Claque are Dave Lowry, Sean O'Shea, Tom Addison and Barry Lister and are noted for their powerful harmonies.
These fifteen tracks are a fine introduction to their repertoire and taken individually there isn't a bad one among them. Flashman fans will be especially delighted to hear his favourite drinking song, Melville-Whyte's DRINK PUPPY DRINK.
However,a studio recording will always lack some of the spark that makes acapella music so exciting when heard live.If you are accustomed to strong choruses in a folk club, then you will probably start to feel the lack of that "spark" when playing this from end to end.
A wonderful CD to dip into or to mix with other material on your MP3 player.
