God Save BBR
The great Black Box Recorder launched the career of Sarah Nixey (aka here as The Lady Sarah Nixey) in 1998. They released three albums, including the epic pop of 2003's Passionoia, which spawned classics like Andrew Ridgeley and The School Song.
Now they've closed up shop with two new songs, Keep It In The Family and Do You Believe In God?, that form Final Statement. Both tracks are solid, with the latter's lyrics classically dry: "When the game is up and the only way out is a pne way trip to the land cuckoo clocks."
Final Statement is on iTunes in the US and UK. My only complaint? I would have loved one more track entirely in spoken word. For those of you who do not know Sarah's solo work, read here and here.
Last note: The package includes a booklet that cost me $2 and would not open. And thanks to James and Service AV - this release would have totally evaded me.
