David Serby and the Latest Scam David Serby and the Latest Scam davidserby.com

David Serby decided after four right acclaimed discs in the alternative country / honky tonk genre (where the last Poor man’s poem additionally was a dark, more popular thing) to completely change tracks. He needed to feel the energy of the blow-out system and playing with other musicians. Said and done: he quickly wrote up fifty (!) Rock/pop- songs, of which twenty got a place on the new record.

Here we hear the echoes of his own early inspiration in life, as Rockpile , Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson . Already on the first song True love bubbling energy and joy almost over and then followed a string of smart pop songs. Serby is namely a very talented songwriter and the lyrics are really sharp. As Amnesia about a man who falls in love with a girl named Amnesia – and forget everything. Or You’re bored , a poisonous comment to exflickvännens attempt to resume the relationship where Serby says that it probably is not about love, but that she simply is bored …

Sure sounds his country and folk roots still, as in the stately ballad Better with my hands (incidentally one of the disc’s only two ballads) – a song that many would kill to have written themselves and who deals with men and women’s different ways to handle problems. Serby is a chameleon musically and succeeds to stand firmly in the tradition and at the same time make it sound interesting. To help them, he recently composed the band The Latest Scam consisting of people he already know and trust. The energy, the distance and playfulness makes me besides the aforementioned names even think of well NRBQ who Dwight Twilley and The Byrds .
Now I should surely have dropped enough names to warrant you to locate David Serby!?

Especially if you obey the call on the cover: PLAY LOUD.
