The Trophy Cabinet’s Rant comes steeped
in the sounds of classic 1980s indie. Fans of Aztec Camera,
Lloyd Cole and particularly The House Of
Love will happily discover that they’re not
the only people for whom the unsullied
spirit of jangly guitar pop music lives
on. `Great Escape’ is almost stately in its
approach, while `Rant’ is anything
but – in fact it’s positively coy, like the
musical equivalent of a shy lad at a party
gazing at a pretty girl from the safety of
another room. `Trust’ is a gentle, romantic
lilt ....the vocalist
verging on hysteria in the mould of James’
Tim Booth at its peak and really, if you
unearthed this on an old 7” vinyl with the
Postcard label stamped on it, you wouldn’t
be surprised or disappointed.
Nightshift. July 2012
