Beans On Toast....A Bird In The Hand
Beans On Toast (aka Jay McAllister) sings the same song over and over; the words might change but his musical accompaniment has a small range, and exists to make words melodic. He’s a mate of, and like, Frank Turner, just less grand.
Early on, he explains his modus operandi to listeners, saying he’s “at it again / pimping out my private life under the lights ... whistling a melody into the breeze .. I try to make some sense of it all come the chorus”.
So this new CD, his tenth studio offering, sees him on his usual topics, with added weight because he is now a dad.
