Live In Concert
Review by German
music magazine "Good Times" issue September
For nearly thirty years hardly anything has changed in
SAILOR (except for the line-up): The Nickelodeon was
updated technically and with synthesizers, but it still
fascinates with its fairground-sound. The songs have
always sounded as if they were from the 1920s, and at the
same time dust-free ("Girls Girls Girls",
"One Drink Too Many", "Jacaranda",
"The Old Nickelodeon Sound"). The stage is
still lightened by an intimate sailor-pub-illumination
and a streetlamp. And the original members Phil Pickett
(nick), Grant Serpell (dr) and "the new guys"
Rob Alderton (nick) and Peter Lincoln (voc, gtr) are
still faithful to their outfits.
In spite of all the show and the closeness to the English
Cabaret, SAILOR, whose respective members have kept the
fun of playing, are a convincing band, especially because
of their music and vocals. "Pirate Copy" is
therefore not only advisable for fans. As a bonus there
are three "unplugged"-tracks, a detailed
band-history and interviews.
