The Medway Strikes Back: The Galileo 7 is the latest incarnation of that wizards by the name of Allan Crockford. References? The Prisoners, SolarFlares, James Taylor Quartet, Headcoats and Stabilisers. This album is yet another blessed fruit of a plant that absorbs water from the swollen fleshy fruits psychedelic past and the present. The musicians of the Medway have something special from Billy Childish to Graham Day until Allan Crockford: their endless production has never shown signs of slowing down of quality. And "Are We Having Fun Yet? looks like a collection of songs in the balance between power pop, 60s, psychedelia, with a constant dynamic and a face pop. The album never falls speed, and when something becomes dominant over the other, the song is rebalancing itself ripegando on another aspect. Now the songwriting of Crockford and Associates is the expression of a profession and an impeccable taste. "Mine! Mine! Mine", "Orangery Lane, " "Run Baby Run" are just some of this colorful necklace of pearls, which passes from the dreamy atmospheres of "Some Big Boys Did It (And Then Ran Away)" all 'Mod aggression of "Go Home" with the nonchalance typical of champions. Guitar, bass, drums and Hammond, for a classic British tradition of the re-Pop. You surely would not miss it to your collection ...
