This may be Andy Bown’s sixth solo album, but it’s his first in 30 years. His Status Quo duties have kept him pretty busy, mind.
Andy Bown: Unfinished Business
Whatever he wants.
Unfinished Business is what you might expect from a 60-something bloke who’s enjoyed his life as a rock musician and has a studio to potter around in.
His serviceable if unspectacular songs are livened up with a witty lyrical style that draws you in, particularly on When The Lights Went On, a list of some of his career highlights; Tick My Box, another list of some of life’s little pleasures; and the kitchen-sink drama Rubber Gloves.
If only he’d worked on his voice to make it as engaging as his words.
