At first listen, you'd never guess that Paul McCartney is the gritty blues voice behind "Nothing Too Much Just out of Sight." The track opens up the third LP from the former Beatle in his project with producer and Killing Joke bassist, Youth. The Fireman's Electric Arguments comes out tomorrow and is the duo's first LP to be publicly acknowledged by Sir McCartney, as well as the first to feature him singing. According to their site:
The album's opener 'Nothing Too Much Just Out Of Sight' is classic rock and an instant attention grabber. A heavy guitar riff with loud drums and souring vocals, it's like nothing The Fireman have ever done before. The second track, the acoustic driven 'Two Magpies' immediately takes you in a different direction, calming things right down. Then we reach the third song 'Sing The Changes', a euphoric upbeat song with an instantly memorable melody.
Electric Arguments continues in this fashion, keeping the listener intrigued as to where The Fireman will take them next. Each album track has an entirely different personality, yet somehow this collection sits together perfectly. Other standout tracks include 'Light From Your Lighthouse', 'Sun Is Shining' and 'Dance 'Til We're High', all in keeping with the genre-hopping spirit of the first two The Fireman albums. Electric Arguments demonstrates that Paul McCartney is still interested in pure musical possibilities. This is an album set to both surprise and delight the listener. Made with no record company restraints or a set release date to work to, Electric Arguments was made with complete artistic and creative freedom."
