Description
A reissue of the one and only album from the virtually unknown Australian singer HOWARD EYNON, now to be reissued 40 years after it's original release. So What If Im Standing In Apricot Jam (note no apostrophe) is a bizarre and wonderful acid folk treasure in the vein of wild-eyed geniuses such as Syd Barret, Kevin Ayers, Neil Innes or Nick Drake, although perhaps even more beautiful and mysterious. It's certainly more unusual, with its colloquial lyrics, acerbic wit and Howard's Anglo-Australian accented singing voice. So What If Im Standing In Apricot Jam is a bold and madcap record on a par with Paul McCartney's Ram. The evocative lyrics take in everything from political commentary, to anti-authoritarian jabs, to bright homely humor and deep descriptive stories. This daffy folksy psychedelic ramble full of tall tales, delightfully quirky melodies, hilarious lyrics and marvelous wordplay, risqué irreverence and beguiling lapses into musical frippery, has not only stood the test of time, but completely and utterly blown it away.
