PB: How long did it take you after he had made you this offer to get that album written and out? We did it in three sessions. We went in and recorded those four songs with some musicians that Pete Smith got together for me, and then it came out really well, and then I wrote another four songs, and we did the same thing about two months later.
Then about another two months later we did another two. It took six to eight months if that, and we ended up with ten songs. When we were mixing the sixth song, Pete got a guy from Almo down.
He played him the stuff and he really liked it, so we knew we had a deal in the offing then. PB: You always choose really great titles for your albums. Where did you first hear that title?
That just struck me as a metaphor for somebody who has lost their mind. That is perhaps the best title of all. How did that come about? Do you remember that band Peter and the Test Tube Babies? I wanted to call it something like that. It was just luck really. You were the only British musician on that label.
How did you end up signed to them? I was playing a gig at The 12 Bar Club in London. Tom Bridgewater from Loose used to put on these nights there called Nashville Babylon, and he used to sometimes put me on the bill. I met the guys at Rykodisc there. They told me that they were interested in signing me then, and so I told my manager of the time and he had a meeting with them, and it just went from there really.
I just picked the songs which I liked. I had to do two tracks off it. The local councillors wanted to develop the area and build on it because nobody was using it. They were these really posh, expensive houses in an otherwise two up, two down street. What was the story behind that one? In this group, they were planning to send their bodies after they died to Phoenix in Arizona.
We write a lot of songs together over the phone, and we were trying to find words for that particular tune, and that track started to sound like it was about climbing a mountain, and so we just continued with that theme. It is not because I am particularly into mountain-climbing Laughs. I probably got the spark for the idea again off something I got off the news.
PB: You seem to take a lot of your Im After You - Peter Bruntnell - Camelot In Smithereens (CD off things that you pick up off the TV and on the news. They inspire quite a lot of what I write. Bill is, however, Im After You - Peter Bruntnell - Camelot In Smithereens (CD, really into classical literature.
There is usually more than one meaning to the lyrics, and that is mostly down to Bill. He likes to layer things meaning-wise. He also likes the tragedies in particular. We are doing one at the moment involving Zeus and Hades. It is just a way that we can find stories to attach our lyrics to. PB: How many of your songs do you write with Bill?

In fact, the track seems to bring back a little of the flavor of the music that had been created back in the nineties by the aforementioned band of Jericho Turnpike. The nineties flavor of the Im After You - Peter Bruntnell - Camelot In Smithereens (CD takes the listener back to the time right before the advent of the music genre called Alternative Rock.
The track contains a simplicity that features only the sound of the acoustic guitar and voice of Michael Allen. The slow pace of the song and the simple musical approach create a musical background for what sounds like an apology disguised as Im After You - Peter Bruntnell - Camelot In Smithereens (CD poetic composition set to music. Pilots from Pale Hollow continues with the title track of the release. If given the chance, this track could be as large as anything on Hot Adult Contemporary radio formats today.
The music on the track contains a strong Pop influence that will remind the listener of something from the likes of Coldplay or Snow Patrol or other bands that fall into the same musical feel. Pale Hollow seems to wear their influences on their sleeves. You can find the Pilots album from Pale Hollow on Spotify. Even the photo on the CD cover looks like something outta the UK! The songs on his brilliant, hook-filled debut have a decidedly Brit folk-rock slant to them. His slightly raspy vocal style recalls the great Peter Bruntnell and even a little bit of Roy Harper at times.
Imagine Peter Bruntnell backed by Crazy Horse! One of, if not "the", roots pop releases of the year! Can't say enough about this one! He's aware that a tune needs more than just a catchy chorus. And even though the hooks come fast and furious on Pale Hollow's debut, Allen builds on his acoustic skeletons with an array of instruments to form a melodic slice of pop rock.
Pale Hollow was originally going to be a solo acoustic project, but Allen recruited some Detroit musicians to give the record a richer sound: The pedal steel in "Don't It Leave You Lonely" and the tuneful electric guitar of "Gustav's Dream" enhance the songs without obscuring their hooks. Allen has since teamed up with local guys and performs around town as the Black Amps, who play much of this sublime album live. It proved to be a good move as the album sounds like a real pro recording, though it's certainly not as sloppy and garage-oriented as the Cobras and Dirtbombs.
Rather, Allen goes for a fuller sound that's more rooted in Britpop think of something along the lines of the Verve meets Guided by Voices. In addition to some fine guitar work, tunes such as "Sugarcane" and "Gustav's Dream" are catchy and suggest Allen might just be one of the best if unheralded songwriters on the local scene. He's since hooked up with local rockers the Black Amps, and they've added the songs here to their repertoire.
You can find them playing around town on a regular basis. Now here's an exceptional disc.
