The Lemon Twigs

GO TO SCHOOL

It wasn’t obvious The Lemon Twigs had stops left to pull out after the eccentric excesses of their debut, Do Hollywood, but they’ve located some. Their career’s second instalment sees them Go To School, but suggests the precocious D’Addario brothers are still too young to understand the horrors the concept album can inflict. They prefer to term it a ‘rock musical’, but either way, an hour-long collection featuring a chimpanzee called Shane can’t help but raise eyebrows, especially when it involves someone wailing “I know how you like your bananas/ Quit with the screeching!” on the time-change-flooded Rock Dreams. As ever, Beatles influences are ubiquitous, not least on the brass interlude of The Bully, which also offers Queen harmonies, while Never Know could be the Liverpudlians’ pal Harry Nilsson, albeit strangely glammed up.
