EP review: THE LICKERISH QUARTET – Threesome Vol. 3

THE LICKERISH QUARTET – Threesome Vol. 3

Lojinx [Release date 20.05.22]

The Lickerish Quartet – ex-Jellyfish members Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Beck, Imperial Drag), Tim Smith (Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Finn Brothers) and Eric Dover (Imperial Drag, Slash’s Snakepit, Alice Cooper) – release their third EP, which is the final piece of their plan to release a debut album, but in instalments as opposed to all in one go.

‘Fortunately’ is the EP’s first single, sung by Tim Smith and is a masterclass in how to create perfect pop rock. Hints of Supertramp, ELO and Jellyfish can all be heard in the mix, along with the Lickerish Quartet’s own sound, which they have developed and honed over the course of these three EPs.

‘New Days’ goes down the 90s Britpop alley, sounding a little bit like Dodgy – but never dodgy of course! Strings dominate the wondrous ‘You All Alone’, which has an easy on the ear chorus and made for daytime radio.

‘In The Meantime’ rounds things off with more pop rock finery. If you loved Jellyfish you’ll love this particular song.

The Lickerish Quartet have delivered three high quality EPs, chock full of memorable songs and no fillers to be heard. Here’s hoping they have enough interest to keep on making music, as it would be criminal if we only ever got three EPs from this talented trio. ****
