Album review: THE LEN PRICE 3 – Kentish Longtails

LEN PRICE 3 - Kentish Longtails

JLM Recordings [Release date 22.09.17]

The Len Price 3 are now on this, their fifth album and not a band I have heard of previously, however if you like punk, pop rock and mod chances are you will need this album. The band switch around musical styles, one minute the classic punk sound on ‘Childish Words’, then there is the blissful pop rock of ‘Pocketful Of Watches’. The melody and harmonies on that one are wonderful, reminded me of the Dowling Poole.

The songs cover a cornucopia of subjects, be it a hark back to the lost days of Saturday cinema on ‘Saturday Morning Film Show’ or the barbed lyric on ‘Ride On Coattails’ aimed at musical hangers on. You certainly meet a few of them at gigs! Shades of Blur on ‘Stop Start Lilly’, mainly in the vocal delivery of Glenn Page and more power pop, with some rocking guitar on ‘If You See What I See’.

Listen on after ‘Man In The Woods’ main part finishes as they sneak in a extra song and a right raucous one it is too! Puts a smile on your face and spark in you stride.

Len Price 3 are a lot like the Kinks or Squeeze, wrapping everyday tales in memorable melodies and not restrained by a musical genre, they are quite happy to go where their musical noses take them. Grab a listen, you won’t be disappointed. ****
