So, Chris Church is a Facebook ‘friend’ and I am only now finding out that he is a Power Pop Rock N Roll singer-songwriter of the highest order? Dayum.
Church’s new album, Backwards Compatible, is exactly what we need to cope with the clusterfuck that Covid—19 has turned the world into.
For music fans out there who still hold the 90s Pop Underground close to their hearts, Backwards Compatible is a literal godsend, evoking the likes of Cheap Trick, Guided By Voices, Splitsville, Fountains of Wayne et al with 12 gorgeous gems that bear repeating.
C’mon, anyone who has ever read my music writing will know what I dig – memorable melodies, heavenly harmonies, pommeling percussions of course guitars that gleam, jangle and crunch!
And Chris Church’s Backwards Compatible ticks every single box. And how!
Not much else I need to say – if like me you swear by Power Pop Rock N Roll, this album is for YOU!
… still there’s more …
