POG - END OF THE SEASON
Beside the Birdbath Records BirdOI

*****

Flying the flag high and proud for British music in an album that fires bullets of award winning gold at every opportunity

Astonishingly enough, this is the eighth album in nine years by the Brighton based four-piece band. Why hasn’t this band become embraced by the general public sooner? Such recognition must surely come their way due to this release which is just pure middle-of-the-forehead genius.

Beginning on what sounds like pots and pans with some piano tinkling, Time’s Kind Fingers has a minimalist sound to it. As the track progresses, it slyly builds up in pace which adds to the general wonderfulness which is created right before your very ears. Although the beginning to Survivor’s Parade can be described as a tad quiet, it begins to proceed into an almost Two Fingers of Firewater sound which I’m sure many have noticed prior to hearing this and is by all means a quite excellent feature of this song. There are some fine tunes out there, but then there are tracks like Coming Home which simply blows your mind away. Borrowing so many elements from other musical forms, it seems to merge these styles together in a seamless way which is that impressive that it certainly leaves a lasting impression. With some slight double bass towards the tracks end which is just ace, this has to be the finest track which must be heard to be truly believed.

The unanswered question remains up for discussion; why has this band not become widely known? Such wrongs must surely be righted due to the release of this album. RH



ROCK N REEL MAGAZINE

POG - END OF THE SEASON
Beside the Birdbath Records BirdOI

With their songs about ghost bikes, the delights of a works' night out and nostalgia for childhood holidays, Brighton-based punk-folkstrels Pog's brand of socially and politically aware music gets another outing with the release of their 8th album, End of The Season. Infectious, entertaining, and thought-provoking.
