Overview

The Low And Sweet Orchestra features members of Thelonious Monster, lead singer Mike Martt and guitarist Zander Schloss (also of The Circle Jerks), the Pogues, James Fearney, and actor Dermott Mulroney. The results yielded on their 1996 effort Goodbye To All That are thoroughly satisfying from the first track to the last. Martt sounds like a less gruff, more coherent Shane MacGowan and the band itself could pass for The Pogues in a less manic state with their use of accordion, mandolin, cello, and dobro. There isn't a weak cut on the entire album and more than a few that will remain in your head for days with their blend of earthy, folk-inflected pop and strong, often amusing, lyrics. For starters, be sure to check out the street corner vendor tale "Pencils And Shades," the amusing "Worst Day," with its barroom lilt, and the very Pogues-like "A Dog Came In The Barroom." There's also several lovely slow numbers including the country-tinged "Miss Her Anyway," and the heartfelt "There I Thought I Saw You Once Again." Perhaps not what you'd expect from the cast, Goodbye To All That is refreshing and endearing, nonetheless.
