The Man

By Paul du Noyer (December 1986, ? Q Magazine)

**** (4 stars)

Having steered the early careers of Echo & The Bunnymen and The Teardrop Explodes, rock manager Bill Drummond has lately felt the need to make his own vinyl statement to the world. This he does via Man, a curious and hugely enjoyable set that trips from Tennessee twang to fake Scottish folk music to brash little pop tunes. Its lyrics encapsulate his bizarrely sage ruminations on life, marriage, rock'n'roll and the sundry pop stars whose destinies have entwined with his own. This record has saxophones, pedal steel guitars, a poem read out by Bill Drummond's ecclesiastical Dad (Such A Parcel Of Rogues In A Nation) and many lines as quotable as I believe in dirty gurrls! - to be recited, loudly, in an industrial-strength Galloway accent. We could stand a lot more of this sort of thing.
