Shed 7 are a band that no-one can link to specific songs but can sing along to when they’re on the radio. For a band who’ve had enough top 20 hits to compile a greatest hits package Rick Witter’s gang disappeared with little fanfare when they split from Polydor some 2 years ago. Now back on an indie the Shed’s pick up from where they left off. Top 30 single “Cry For Help” is here in it’s strings and acoustic glory whilst tracks like “If The Music Don’t Move Ya” plug in for more electrified “Bully Boy” era sounds. The bulk of the album, however, is jaunty without rocking too hard, thankfully also avoiding a fall into the Coldplay/Elbow/Starsailor template of polite-rock. Indie like it used to be, and all the better for it.
