With self-evident reference point of Dire Straits – Hometown (available on bandcamp) doesn’t dwell in the past rather provide a continuum of the ever evolving cycle of music where to pull on the past can still make for material of currency and in another forty years so one will be minded of Ned Gale as a circumlocution of influence with the same rushed and awkward lyrics trying to cram themselves into spaces that don’t exist.

If you don’t fully recall Sultans of Swing in what is now an iconic reference track with its broken stanzas and over reaching lyrics do take another listen before you criticise Ned for doing exactly the same thing in his début release and given time will be as smoothly able to transition the contrasts.
