Reseña de álbum

Stavely Makepeace's modus operandi was similar to that of their more famous alter ego act, Lieutenant Pigeon: quirky, slightly lo-fi homemade production married to simple pop songs with heavy echoes of both '50s rock & roll and British novelty music. If you're looking for a way to tell this act apart from Lieutenant Pigeon, Stavely Makepeace is a far more vocal-oriented project, and less eccentric (though not enormously so).

If it's something you want to investigate or relive, however, this CD anthology does their legacy justice, the wide-ranging survey of their output complemented by lengthy liner notes with numerous memories from Woodward and Fletcher themselves.

While Woodward later enjoyed limited success as a solo singer under the alias Shel Naylor, eventually mounting a one-man cabaret show, Fletcher spent the middle of the decade serving in the British Merchant Navy, settling in London following his 1967 discharge. In late 1968 Woodward and Fletcher resumed their creative partnership, decamping...
