manchestermusic.co.uk – review of "Julian Gaskell & his Ragged Trousered Philanthropists" album (2007)

Superbly packaged, Julian Gaskell’s latest album absorbs elements of his last demo and also calls up an old classic, each and all played in his now familiar style – A long time resident of Manchester , now relocated back home on the south Coast, Gaskell has his own particular brand of gypsy punk – a craft he was honing in 1999/2000 in places like Night & Day, Jabez Clegg, Big Hands and The Roadhouse. As a singer who’s always had a touch of Joe Strummer about him, the vocals have a slight growl, and sneer along with his trademark political and social commentaries. As he hits “I.D On My Gravestone” Gaskell is in full flight, but at this point the music has slowed to a wonderfully energetic crawl. At times the style is pushed well out of even his own boundaries, as the swing time and even more carefree style of “It’ll Never Turn Out Nice Again” sounds like John Lydon and Robert Wyatt tearing out a couple of numbers from “Bednobs and Broomsticks”, as though it was a still beating, bloody heart. Over eighteen tracks it’s a delightful, well constructed journey which also resurrects “Billy Slag” from an earlier era in the Gaskell career - it all seems to fit together so perfectly. A pioneer of new wave skiffle and the use of acoustic instruments as weapons of new punk, Julian Gaskell is one of Britain’s few, truly original folk masters.
