about

“Simon Finn’s recent return to live work and recording a mere three
and a half decades after the release of his sole album, Pass The Distance, has been one of the most remarkable comebacks of recent times, with his creative powers seemingly undimmed by the intervening years. Magic Moments is the first collection of all new material to emerge since then and it’ll be gravy for anyone who has experienced his wildly hypnotic live shows. It gathers a clutch of recent performance favourites (three of which “Walkie Talkie”, “Eros” and “Wanted You”, previously appeared on last year’s Silent City Creep EP) alongside a reworking of one track, “Golden Golden”, that dates back to the time of his first LP. The sound is live, primitively executed and extremely intimate, with Finn on acoustic guitar and vocal, accompanied on a few tracks by Joolie Wood of Sun Dial and Current 93, on flute, recorder and violin. Finn’s presiding influence still sounds like Leonard Cohen, and that same kind of cigarette box apocalypticism defines the atmosphere of much of Magic Moments. His lyrics are bleak, scabrous and funny, and the combination of violin, acoustic guitar and revealing personal exegesis gives it the feel of Rolling Thunder/Desire-era Bob Dylan.”

- The Wire (David Keenan)
