Communion - The Flowerpot Sessions
Recorded live at the now-defunct Flowerpot in north London, this lukewarm grassroots hotpot aims to bottle a memory of lightning. Out of cheery-beery context, Crowns’ ‘Little Eyes’ is a trite finale which buggers itself with tactless mid-song self-promotion.
In fairness it’s not all ham-fisted facepalm – though tearstained byTreetop Flyers’ earnest wail, ‘It’s About Time’ has an easy rocking-chair repose, and while the tired-eyed bromides of Lissie’s ‘Oh Mississippi’ are more ‘Little Bo Peep’ than ‘Rust Never Sleeps’, they at least warm the cockles. A fair harvest from a sporadically likeable tractor-folk collective, but when shit comes to shovel you probably had to be there.
