„Simple and sophisticated, heartfelt with an edge, and a voice I love since the days of Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. I even like those of his songs that are only half as good.“ (m.e.)

    Since the demise of the much-missed Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci in 2006, frontman Euros Childs has released a dizzying array of solo records. His ninth called SITUATION COMEDY leaves behind the wearing synth experiments and lo-fi oddities of recent years for a set of witty piano-pop songs.

    However, its character studies have a grim undertone – ‘Second Home Blues’ looks at how empty holiday cottages have damaged the Welsh countryside, and ‘Holiday From Myself’ is a portrait of a disaffected songwriter tired of being played “on a shuffle that never ends”. It ends with the 14-minute ‘Trick Of The Mind’, perhaps Childs’ most beautiful song ever. Maybe Gorky’s aren’t so missed now.
