Charlie Looker - Fascist Moments

As an album, Charlie Looker's Simple Answers is intricately-arranged chamber-pop, making his spot on this bill between locals Clarinet Panic and TRYAL extremely logical. As a live (and solo) presentation, the songs had more of an electro-goth edge, making those connections a bit less obvious. Generally straight-faced throughout, Looker tackled the so-called "Morrissey problem" (where intense earnestness tips over into a form of self-parody) head-on, even when descending down from the stage to sing among the crowd.
