Stevie Jackson "(i can't get no) STEVIE JACKSON"

(Banchory) This solo debut from Belle & Sebastian guitarist/songwriter Jackson is a joyful monument to pop prowess, which references the Beatles not so much musically, but in detailed cultural metaphor/anecdotes (comparing running from the rain to the Fabs running from girls in their movie, and inferring biographical significance to what Beatles albums you had as a lad). Then he brings it home by actually referencing the Beatles musically, but rejecting John, Paul, and even George, by crafting a perfect Ringo song about bad e-mail decisions! He's a magnificent Mocker!
