Beaulieu Porch is the recording name for Simon Berry who, like flavour of the month Jacco Gardner, does it all himself. And what he does is create huge sounding psychedelic symphonies. I can picture Berry in a technicolour tuxedo swishing and thrusting his conductor’s baton toward the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra through “Keep On Screaming”, “Love 80” and “Greencroft Street” like it’s the Last Night of the Lysergic Proms. The only part of Beaulieu Porch I’m not mad about is the high pitched vocals but the instrumental work and the arrangements are outstanding; full of depth, detail and invention.
Beaulieu Porch is released on Tillsammans Records.
