The Lucky Strikes
The Lucky Strikes The Motion and the Moving On (Harbour Song) 5/5
THIS album by the Southend legends who are The Lucky Strikes does not disappoint, with a wealth of strong songs delivered by gifted vocalist and songwriter MG Boulter.
He’s backed by a driving rhythm section, with Paul Ambrose on bass and Will Bray on drums, while David Giles on keyboards and Toby Shaer on fiddle and saxophone add sterling support.
Opener Homesick sets the tone.
Conjuring a forlorn and poetic sense of place, it’s an anthem of relentless beauty, complete with an evocative and haunting slide guitar.
