Mr Atavist featured my song Malice in his Sunrise Ocean Bender radio show. Luckily he records his shows and posts them online as podcasts too. That particular episode is called “They’ll soon forget the field in which you lie”. You can find it at:

I went over to his wordpress blog and subsequently stumbled onto a review he wrote of my album ‘Scary Poppins’. Here’s a couple of highlights:

“Touches of the fragile detachment of Radiohead and a spectrum of dramatic emotion all take up residence under an ominous sky.”

“Galagher drives the narrative with a deep fret in his voice that has quiver and allure that reminds me of Chris Connelly, working his own ruminations on outings like Largo or under the guise of The Bells. Of course that leads right to Bowie, who also comes to mind from the vocals to some of the dramatic flare.”

Delarue from the New York Music Daily reviewed a few of my songs recently. Scapegoat was described as a “swirly, creepy 6/8 anthem, psychedelic 60s gone noir cabaret with 80s goth production: watery guitars, icy keys and vintage Bowie-esque vocals”. The analysis of Berserkergang was “quavery/whispery goth vocals over reverberating Radiohead-style electric piano”. I also enjoyed the part which read: “Out to Sea is basically Michael Hurley’s Werewolf redone as late 70s Bowie; the real stunner on the page is Malice, an absolutely evil chromatic piano anthem, like Blonde Redhead at the top of their creepy mid-90s game.”

What a review! You can read the whole thing here: http://newyorkmusicdaily.wordpress.com/2012/01/03/madpride/
