Gareth Sager (feat. Davy Henderson)

All You Put Me Through (Creeping Bent)

By • Dec 9th, 2020 • Category: Single review

This is a pairing of a couple of musical legends – Gareth Sager of The Pop Group and other things, with Davy Henderson of The Fire Engines, Win, Nectarine, Sexual Objects and other things…

The lead single on Sager’s new album ‘How Can I Help You When You Don’t Want to Help Yourself’, this is a fairly low-key romp which references lounge music, doowop and quite a lot else besides.

Henderson’s vocals are the characteristic croon and the lyrics are typically great – “got no beef with your sacred cow…” and the instrumentation is eccentric and stylish, showing Sager’s experience but also his whip-smart mastery of how to put a tune together and work with the vocalist.

The track is a great collaboration between two musicians who have contributed so much to the UK underground over the decades, it is a truly pleasurable listen…
