Boo! Guardian - April 11th, 2008

Few pop-rock songwriters are prepared to address modern life in all its rancid, dysfunctional glory. Fewer still can frame their lyrics in music that doesn’t rot your teeth. But Don and David Was have done this since the 1980s, and middle age suits them just fine. Boo!, their first album for 16 years, is well up to the standard of classics such as What Up Dog? and Are You Okay? Vocalists Harry Bowens, Sweet Pea Atkinson and Donald Ray Mitchell deliver the skewed tales of It’s a Miracle, From the Head to the Heart and Crazy Water with ferocious soulfulness. David Was adds a dose of his customary obliqueness on Needletooth; Kris Kristofferson intones the hallucinatory words to Green Pills in the Dresser; and Bob Dylan drops by mysteriously to co-write Mr Alice Doesn’t Live Here Any More. Plus there is authentic Motown drumming by the legendary James Gadson – all guaranteed to make you feel (weirdly) better than James Brown.
