Andrew Vincent and the Pirates I Love The Modern Way ( Kelp) Rating: NNN
Whether it's channelling or homage, Andrew Vincent and his sea raiders are playing in the Modern Lovers' vacant lot. But there's plenty of room to mess around in. Vincent's natural talent for turning awkward thinking into perfect words is centre-stage here. And if it sounds shockingly reminiscent of Jonathan Richman's talent, then maybe it's because it has always been that way - and this was just Vincent's way of pointing it out. Andrew Vincent and the Pirates play Healey's Friday (March 5) at midnight.
