MP3 Bison - The Dark Side of the Moo
Branching out from the ska-pop template of the first two albums, with a more unusual (but still poptastic) mix of tunes.
9 MP3 Songs
POP: British Pop, ROCK: Ska
Wide Shot: Cumbria, February 2006. Silent and snow-capped, Helvellyn goes about its business. Rodents are dormant. In the middle distance, a rock the size of a footballer’s tie-knot is obeying the laws of thermodynamics. Suzie the Sunshine Bus meanders through the foreground towards Crossthwaite. Within her buckling white flanks a tonne of meat knocks 18 of its knees together in anticipation. Bison are going on their holidays. Tara barks at a smell on the floor. Pete Not Bombs is folded neatly in the glove compartment with a bottle of Morrison’s own single malt. All is rod.
And so it goes: for six long days and nights within the thick stone walls of a modest cottage the herd toil, slave and generally pillock around.
The result is the Dark Side of the Moo, Bison’s third album and a bit of a departure, which finds them exploring the more unusual material that has always surrounded the pop-ska heart of their sound (although raucous opener Spleen in a Hoop ensures that side is represented too). Produced by Pete Not Bombs, now Bison’s full time keyboard player, this album features some creative studio mixing and a guest appearance from Peckham’s finest agit-eejit DJ Rubbish. The Dark Side of the Moo twists and turns like a forest path along its succinct 37-minute course, full of surprising light and shade.
The lunatics are definitely on the grass.
