Veteran rootsy Newcastle band Archie Brown & The Young Bucks take you in a comforting, warm embrace. Yet before you know it you are travel companions on a descent through the bottom of a glass, fading away in Lonesomeville.

With a lineage that includes post-Dexy’s Midnight Runners and The Bureau, they spin stories with a gravelly voice that registers all the 45 years since the original inception of the Young Bucks in Tyneside in 1975. Perhaps better known now for his children’s TV themes, Archie Brown shares lyrical duties with Northern Irish poet Kevin McKay, which allows for different word pictures set to a shifting musical carousel from Geordi-cana, country rock and blues to the enchanting folk of The Field. A vintage blend.
