Forever On The Edge
4 Or 5 Magicians debut single Forever On The Edge is out now on Alcopop Records. Its a 3 inch, 4 track selection of concise and beautifully crafted alt-rock songs. There's enough distorted guitar riffs and blistering drum tracks to keep your average rock fan happy but with the addition of wit and realism in Dan's lyrics, the band are lifted above the crowd of tuneless, thoughtless individuals that call themselves the British indie scene at the moment.
Highlight of the cd is track 4, a tongue-in-cheek rendition of the title track in the style of bluesy raconteur Tom Waits. The balls to actually put this on your debut release and the fact that they pull it off so well shows that the band really do have something special, or maybe they just don't mind risking trying something different
