Billy Shinbone is a singer/songwriter/ musician from Manchester who plays almost every instrument on this album. The music is a lo-fi fusion funk folk blues BG psych rock, or what is called “deviant skiffle manglings & disco-punk-rock-blues” on his website. The music has a lot of appeal to all ages (even my opinionated 19 year old daughter found it groovy). Best for me: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 (hmmm… I think I liked it!) PS Check out the song titles. Hilarious!

Med - Psych rock
Med - cross between the Beatles and Rocky Horror (kinda melodrama pop)
slow/med- psych rock ballad: dreamy vocals. Lo Fi sound
Med - more of a giddy-up speed, “Americana” by a Brit
slow/med - nice electric guitar opening, then interesting folk rock tune
Slow - drum sounds like clapping hands, heavy, slow, dangerous vibe
Slow - dreamy psych folk rock ballad
slow/med - mandolin intro, then Lo Fi happy rock tune
Med - fusion funk folk BG psych rock (The Shinbone sound?)
slow/med - banjo dominant, Shinbone fusion
