Description

Matthew Barber, with the help of his band the Union Dues, is one of those singer-songwriters who rocks. Perhaps not in the way that AC/DC or Led Zeppelin rock, but rather in the way that people like Neil Young, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen have rocked ever since Bob Dylan plugged in and set his majestic lyrics and melodies against a backdrop of electric energy and a backbeat. The songs on this album are undeniably those of a singer-songwriter. They were written in isolation, in the basement or backyard or bedroom of their author, mainly on acoustic guitar. But the majority of them were written with the rhythm in mind, with the guitar hooks and bass lines imagined, and with the ultimate intention of being belted out live with the Union Dues. The result is a record that is lyrically captivating, melodically sophisticated and disarmingly personal without forsaking the importance of the groove, the hooks and ultimately the rock.
