Passenger

Wicked Man's Rest (Chalk Mark)

By • Mar 1st, 2006 • Category: Single review

Passenger used to be known as the Mike Rosenberg Band, and undoubtedly everyone (except Mr Rosenberg’s Mum) will be glad of the change. Unfortunately they’re still peddling the kind of insipid Pop Idol-reject, saccharine-sweet, consumer-friendly rock-lite that they used to, before they got a decent name. They might have slotted a sample of Allen Ginsberg’s poetry into the middle of ‘Wicked Man’s Rest’ as a desperate attempt at indie credibility, but it doesn’t stop me wanting to bludgeon them around the head with something blunt. James, preferably.
