Liam Lynch - Fake Songs
Liam Lynch is a little bit different. Having brought a welcome dose of irony to MTV with his daily sock-puppet show Sifl and Olly, the Ohio maverick has now turned around and viciously bitten the hand that feeds him. The result is Fake Songs, a hilarious collection of spoofs of the likes of David Bowie, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode and, most impressively, Bjork (her skittish murmurings may make her an easy target, but that doesn't make Lynch's impersonation any less funny). And, crucially, with twenty tracks zipping by in less than 40 minutes, none of these gloriously satirical portraits is allowed to outstay its welcome. Accompanying the album is a DVD, Fake Movies, which contains a generous selection of video diaries and animation sequences and studio footage. Even Ringo Starr pops up to show his appreciation by playing drums on a couple of tracks, looking as if he's genuinely enjoying himself for the first time in decades. All of which gives Lynch a good claim to being a one-man Spinal Tap for a new generation - and boy, do we need him.
