About this deal

Continuing the story from the rock-and-roll records that spilled from the docks into the arms of waiting beat groups, the hopeful indie-pop of the 80s that faced-down Thatcher’s cruelty and the Merseypsych boom of the ‘shroomy 2000’s, Webster sings his city to tell a story of our times. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. Our would-be everyman’s also astute enough to understand that the whole thing is rigged against the common man, beginning a song cycle with the words of Living For Yesterday’s man-trap of avaricious consumerism, before offering the hedonism of Weekend In Paradise as the escape route from downpours, debt and drudgery. These days, that’s a hard thing to find, as fooling ourselves has become a national sport, a blight the singer lays out on opener Down The Road, its scuffed-up indie rock immediate proof that this isn’t just another street corner urchin with a grab bag of hope. The message of hope is an important one that should resonate with everyone who is struggling through these strange times.

Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since. Though Liverpool seems to be very aware of the 24-year-olds talent, this album is set to capture the rest of the nation soon enough. The Joker’ tells a story of loss, with the lyrical content being placed front-and-centre, and only simple accompanying guitar instrumentation.Sitting around the middle of the album is Somethings Gotta Give talking about the harsh realities of life. Though a small number of songs could slip through the cracks the majority of the album consists of songs that should feature permanently in your playlists. Webster cuts more to the chase than his forebears though, saying We Get By, ‘documents and asks questions of the struggles, joys and escapes of everyday working-class life.

The positioning of the songs in the album compliments his music well as it doesn’t give the listener the feeling that they are listening to the same song on repeat which can be found with a number of artists. As he sees it though, the means to combat all of this are rooted in community, in throwing away the meaningless and cutting spite and division out of lives (advice given on the street corner yell of Change) before rescuing those who’ve slipped between the cracks and lifting them up (Out On The Street, its scouse-psych overtones handed down through generations of the city’s best like an heirloom). Webster describes the city as his heart and it reminds the listener of the impact your home town can have on a person.He speaks of the unfairness of life for the working class and the reality of dreams creating a melancholy feel which is also felt in Stop Living Blind and is a needed feature of his album.
