Today Shakey Times are here to convince you that the new Mike Bones’ record, A Fool for Everyone is something that you need in your life.
Instead of presenting you with some flowery text and well engaged metaphors about the record, we instead are going to be straight with you: This record is incredible.
When we saw the album cover advertised, initial thoughts all lead us to think “what a bloody prat. No, really, look at him, that is funny”…before chuckling outrageously at Mike Bones lying there on the cover. Even with his hairy chest out on show I think it’s impossible not to forgive the labels art department’s short comings – once you start using your ears and not your eyes at least.
It’s one of the first records we’ve heard in a long time that sounds like a ‘proper’ album. It’s something that’s come from somewhere real and something that plays a symphony with your heart strings from the first track to the last. Magic.
