The All New Adventures Of U
St Crispin's Got Our Backs / The Art Of The High Five
Think of every instrument that you can and this band uses it, in short glockenspiels, casiotones, mandolins, organs and a new style instrument that you may not know oh yeah that's it a guitar. So it is not surprising that there is a mere seven people in the band that are known as The All New Adventures Of Us. (For those lazy reviewers they are known as TANAOU)
St Crispin's Got Our Backs and The Art Of The High Five is the debut double 'A' side single. Not only is this a double 'A' side, but the download release date and the physical release date shows how far we have come since tape single releases. The All New Adventures Of Us are one of the bands to benefit from being a part of the Electric Proms. With St Crispin's Got Our Backs there was no need to sell it as a double 'A' side. This song says it all, dual vocals in the way of female and male, and although there is so much going on with the actual music, the lyrics are just black and white. So have The All New Adventures missed out on a trick here? Could they of actually have had two singles under their belt? The Art Of The High Five is the second part of the double 'A' side. The one thing about The All New Adventures Of Us is you will spend so much time trying to figure out what is going on with the music, that you will miss the lyrics. These are like a complicated film that you will need four or five listens and each time you will pick something else up.
The All New Adventures Of Us are a really exciting prospect and hold that something else, that something more, just something different. There could be massive times ahead for the seven that is The All New Adventures Of Us.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
