Song Of A Page / In Bloom (Live) - Song Of A Page / In Bloom (live)
Hush The Many (heed The Few)
[ Galagos 009 ]


Vinyl: £3.99





Hush The Many (Heed The Few) reside in London Town. They consist of Ruban (guitar skyscraping), Jo (spaceage cello), Alex (bass / vocals) and Nima (vocals / guitar). 'Song Of A Page' is their first ever release and puts the seal on a year of stealthy endeavour. Bestival, End Of The Road and Secret Garden are some of the live events they have infiltrated. Clayhill, The Hours, Son Of Dave and Ed Harcourt are just a few of the live acts they have played with. Unsurprisingly, in such mellow surroundings Hush The Many (Heed The Few) have proven themselves to be protaganists of folk rock in excelsis.

And for sure the flared trousers, Nima's acoustic guitar and the exceedingly amiable onstage vibe indicates a collective more than at home with their chunky sweater side. Yet, as the thoroughly edgy 'Song From A Page' suggests, beneath the bonhomie there lurks something dark and mysterious, driving a sound that can sweep from virtual silence to sonic chaos frequently in the same song. Better still, Hush The Many (Heed The Few) make us think of Mogwai, Hope Of The States, Arab Strap, Al Stewart... inspirational people with important things to say, and sometimes with sounds, not words. But they aren't post-rock, or epic indie militants, or slurring sex poets, or indeed a pal of Al. They are Hush The Many (Heed The Few). And they rock their own world. Gently.

Hush The Many (Heed The Few) represent the ninth release on Label Fandango, the unnervingly successful 7" singles club set up by a bloke from fierce panda records and a chap from Pointy Recordings. They follow in the dainty footsteps of such esteemed rising starlets as Air Traffic, Fanfarlo, Assembly Now and The On-Offs. And they make us very happy indeed. Regular Fandango onlookers will be delighted to note that the aa-side of this single is a lush rendition of live favourite 'In Bloom' which sprawls itself leisurely over the vinyl like a very big dog on a very small sofa.
