Rotifer - Canvey Island

Produced by Wreckless Eric, released on Edwyn Collins' new label AED and featuring Darren Hayman in his band, Robert Rotifer has plenty of literate support for his storytelling style. On this first single from forthcoming album The Hosting Couple there's a deliberate nostalgia, based on real events from his youth of his first trip to England from his native Austria, emphasised by the sepia-tinged sway that sounds about right for this sudden heatwave, even if big drums are determined to stomp all over the ending.
