PROTO IDIOT - nÚ Andrew Anderson, also of Manchesters THE HIPSHAKES, and his pals Callum Darley (drums) and Michael Seal (bass). "If you like that, then youll love this" is the maniacal chant on "Im An Artist." Hear it enough and youll believe it! The Eddie Murphy parallels shouldnt be too much of a stretch, but if it seems a bit obtuse, think Ray Davies with Attention Deficit Disorder. Better? Either way, "Leisure Opportunity" is no comedy album, per se, but its riddled with humor on both the musical and lyrical fronts. Try not to guffaw at a line that tells you what youre listening to: "DRUMS! BASS! VOCALS! GUITAR!" on "Yes Yes Yes Yes," but the unintentional appropriation of Gloria Estefans "Turn The Beat Around" chord progression on "Angry Vision" deserves a "HEE-HAW!" at the very least, to say nothing of Andersons first person narrative on the "Theme" when he declares "I cant even play guitar." Spoiler: he can indeed play guitar, and the orchestra is also proficient on DRUMS! BASS! VOCALS! (debatable) respectively, with composition / production duties that can cream virtually anyone making kids music today.
