Review

Pete Fyfe - www.folking.com - 24/09/2002
The North-East of England has been established in folk music circles for many years represented by such great bands as Lindisfarne, Jack The Lad and Hedgehog Pie. Now a new name can be added to this illustrious roster.

The Hush boasts the vocal talents of Bob Fox, and an awesome line-up of Jed Grimes (ex-Hedgehog Pie) on guitars and bouzouki, Garry Linsley (saxophones), Graham Wood (piano), Paul Smith (drums) and Neil Harland on bass. Drawing material from the rich seam of traditional ('Here's The Tender Coming' and 'The Snow It Melts Te Soonest') and contemporary songs from their native area, the band have managed to capture fresh sounding arrangements that will appeal to the widest possible audience.

Exploring a diverse array of rhythms including reggae and jazz or the region's own indigenous timing of 3/2 the band's sound is vibrant without being over the top. The scene has been lacking an 'original' folk-rock sound for some time and considering the title of the band, The Hush have more than enough to shout about! By the way, when are we going to see the Hedgehog Pie albums released on CD?
