about

Following his critically acclaimed 2008 debut album 'Sirens', 'The 88' is the first single from Pete Greenwood's yet to be released follow up and is quoted in Q magazine by NOEL GALLAGHER as a song he wished he'd written.
In a change from the legendary finger-style that brought Pete such high critical acclaim in the second half of the 00s, this later recording sets his sweet, chain-smoked vocal against an echoing backdrop of crackled guitars and thick bass. Such a fantastically dark edge can be a credited to producer Stephen Cracknell (The Memory Band).
As the unwavering beat drags you through a poisonous depiction of a morally bereft adversary, a one-time breakthrough who rode his luck when the gig was easy (“...you cheat n you lie n yer seem to hate everyone/and never a good turn done…”), Pete then turns the camera on himself to mirror his antagonist with resentments of failure and the betrayal of excess (“….the night might suck you in/to spit you out at dawn again….”). On this score, Pete’s pen has never been sharper and, as the closing flutter and wobble of side A drops you off somewhere between the West Coast and Camden North, you can’t help but feel he may have stuck a word or two about you yourself in there somewhere. I wouldn’t put it past him.
