“WAS (Not Was) may have been napping, but they never stopped having nightmares!” runs the blurb which accompanies the group’s first album of original material in 18 years, for which David and Don Was have been rejoined by their dapper vocal foil Sweet Pea Atkinson and by the jolly Sir Harry Bowens. Boo! sounds a bit like an acid-fried version of those old Southern Comfort ads, with some Detroit funkiness added to the southern rhythm’n’blues mix. It’s an anachronistic-sounding album which pays scant attention to any musical water that has passed under the bridge in the last two decades, but there is enough of their business-as-usual offbeat humour and an atmospheric spoken-word cameo from Kris Kristofferson to compensate.
