CYRIL LORDS: Motherland: CD

A poppy, highly stylized Detroit (via Ohio) “garage” band, nearly evocative of the Smoking Popes. Polished, melodious and infectious in that college radio way, this mop-top, Nehru-collared trio isn’t nearly as communicable as their previous incarnation, The Bloody Hollies. However, the many loyal fans of the Cyril Lords will thoroughly enjoy this catchy and well-produced album.
