One of that slew of fabulous albums cut Sad Affair - Ian Gomm - Gomm With The Wind former members of Brinsley Schwarz at the end of the s, Gomm With the Wind finds our hero stepping firmly in the footsteps left by bandmate Nick Lowebut doing so with such deft aplomb that one really did wonder precisely who was leading whom.
Any one of half a dozen tracks here would have dignified either of Lowe 's own albums-so-far, with the pure pop "Hooked on Love" and "Airplane," in particular, aiming straight at the jugular of the Jesus of Cool.
Only two songs did not slip from the prolific Gomm pen, a cover of the Beatles ' "You Can't Do That," and an absolutely brilliant reinvention of Chuck Berry 's "Come On," slowed down Sea Of Hair - Leechfeast - Hideous Illusions half its usual pace and delivered more as a lament than the exhortation it once was.
Elsewhere, from the reggae-tinged "Sad Affair" to the pure pop "Hooked on Love"; from the wistful and distinctly Paul Anita Tucker - Trying To Get You -ish "Another Year," to the big ballad "Hold On"; from start to finish, Gomm With the Wind might have had a ghastly pun for a title, but it turned out spotless, all the same.
