Following on from his highly acclaimed 2002 debut Len Parrott's Memorial Lift, Baxter Dury proved with 2005 follow-up Floor Show that it was certainly no fluke. This sophomore set sounds like it was recorded in St Paul's Cathedral, with vocals added in the whispering gallery. Narratively, it seems to be about a disintegrating relationship, although this is no confession booth moment. Guitars float like ectoplasm, Wurlitzer's spin beneath mirror balls, summoning the presence of spectral beings, swaying to luxurious, narcotic music that predates trip-hop by a good sixty years. Stand-out tracks include the single "Lisa Said," "Cocaine Man" and the wonderful "Francesca's Party." The album was produced by Baxter, Nick Terry and mixed by Craig Silvey (The Coral, Magic Numbers) in West London in the winter of 2004-2005. The band features Damon Reece on drums and Mike Mooney on the electric guitar - both former members of Spiritualized.
