|Pete Hackett's latest Cult of Wedge outing is progressively edgy ...|
Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] has been pleased to highlight the quirky musical vehicle of local musician, songsmith and producer Pete Hackett that is Cult of Wedge [CoW] over the last few years. Indeed, any artist who describes themselves as being "... a bit like a car crash involving members of ELO, Genesis, Human League, Kraftwerk, Motorhead and Yes ..." is worthy of much more significant music media attention than that of Yours Truly KJS and ELOBF! So what then of this the latest outing? The preceding three Cult of Wedge albums: "Tape Recorders Changed Everything", "On The Green Seventy Seen" and "Another Ten Songs About Death, Hurt and Misery" give no clue to the change in style being presented by the pride of Rowley Regis.
