the single: reviewed
Hello. My name’s Matt, and I’m weeping milky tears of joy…
Here’s the first coverage of my first single, Wet Dream Disaster, in Brighton Source magazine:
(It’s a little way down the page – I’ll archive it in full in the PRESS section presently.)
They’ve picked up on the spunk motif, which is misleading – it’s not really about bodily fluids, but why let that get in the way of a catchy title? My younger self, striving away in the musical hinterlands so pious, serious and right-on, would be elaborately and self-righteously horrified. But I’ve kept faith with my creative hopes in one important respect: no compromise. None.
Good review, too.
(EDIT: If you’re reading this in 2021 – or any year with a “2” in the middle – I can only salute your completism: I’ve just deleted the single as a separate item, so it can now only be heard on the album. It’s been a while and the back catalogue’s getting a bit out of hand… Still not keen on compromise, mind.)
