Ruffly-headed posho, turned Tom Petty tribute troubadour, Charlie Fink and co. deliver their latest slice of faux Americana. If the last single L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. sounded like the Cliffs Notes to a Bukowski novel, this one is Deacon Blue on holiday in middle America.
A pleasant, radio-cosy plinky-plonky piano tune full of Bruce cliches about ‘the last bus out of town’ and the ‘dancing white lights of the city’. There are more vacant, redundant caricatures in these three minutes than in your average episode of My Family. Someone send him home for a nice cup of tea before he discovers On the Road.
