According to his press release Philip has not been a lucky man, loved by reviewers and signed to several labels he’s never got further than his own bedroom in terms of being a star. And it’s not all that surprising really. This is a man who writes okay songs about okay things. His skill is not in doubt, his inspiration is however questionable. Media Gurls is so bedroom rock indie it goes straight in one ear and out the other whilst the second track is only notable for his vocal style swinging alarmingly between Jarvis Cocker and David Bowie, whilst backed by a half arsed jam session. One of these songs fades out at the end, for that alone I deduct marks.
