If you're wondering whatever happened to the lovelorn pop teens of the 1960s, then wonder no more. It turns out they've been recast as a swooning rock'n'roll five-piece from Yorkshire. Updating the drama-infused trials and tribulations of the likes of the Shangri-Las by stacking their tunes high with unrelenting guitar riffage, shouted blokey harmonies and a barricade of sound that never slips below 11, the Pigeon Detectives look set to follow the Kaiser Chiefs and the Arctic Monkeys to indie domination…
"Until All The Ghosts Are Gone" is the long awaited album from Anekdoten, a wait of eight years since the excellent "A Time Of Day" (2007). Fortunately it's been worth the wait as it's as good as and sometimes better than most of their back catalogue. It's clearly recognisably Anekdoten with no great leaps in style. The haunting and melancholic melodies, the dynamic rhythm section and of course the ever present Mellotron. "Until All The Ghosts Are Gone" is a crowning achievement for Anekdoten, one of the absolute standout progressive rock albums of 2015.
