The Phenomenal Handclap Band can put a tune together, that’s for sure. How much of that is down to Ray Mang’s touch is debatable though, as I’d never listened to them before reviewing this. So it’s 5 mixes of the same track, and a cursory flick through them reveals very little variance between versions. A more detailed listen reveals brings nothing extra to the table either. It’s a good track, if you like that sort of thing, but I can’t get away from the image of the type of people I’d rather avoid singing along to this. A little overcooked, but I suppose you’ll pick and choose innit.
