David Woodcock on the Moon

Mr Woodcock should be known to anyone who listens to BBC Radio 6 Music and especially  the shows of Mr Steve Lamacq. It is not surprising that he caught Mr Lamacq's attention as he is from Essex and is amalgamation of many of the finest elements of a particularly southern English take on rock n' roll encompassing The Kinks, The Specials, Madness, Paul Weller and Blur .

The album kicks off brilliantly with two of his singles but does not quite manage to maintain that quality throughout with Relativity Single Man and The Girl I used to Know being a bit flat but there are some lovely quieter moments and then there are big, heart on sleeve, hopelessly romantic numbers like The Adventures of You and Me, Memories and especially Springtime in New York that do match up to the singles - except they are very much not too school for school but then he was home schooled above a sweet shop in Southend with a piano and plenty of Chas and Dave. You can listen to him interviewed by non other than Mr Lurpacq here
