You’ve come a long way, baby.Young Adam Green has come a long way since wearing a felt pixie costume and hollering “Who’s got the crack?” in anti-folk duo The Moldy Peaches. Now, on Drugs, he hollers “I like drugs. I like to hold them for a friend.” But whereas the Peaches’ no-fi racket sounded like it was recorded in the bog, Green’s four solo albums have become increasingly lavish. Jacket Full Of Danger peaks with MOR country kitsch and OTT string arrangements, while Green’s disconcertingly mature baritone has all the tics and phrasing of the club singer (he just can’t resist a climactic octave-leap). If this was any more showbiz it’d be performed on ice.
Adam Green – Jacket Full Of Danger, out now on Rough Trade Records.
