Terris - Learning to Let Go (2001) Retail CD
Is he the new indie Messiah? Or the latest in a long line of holy fools? Gavin Goodwin, the lead singer of incendiary rock tykes Terris, sees the desolation and redemption of TS Eliot's The Wasteland in the run-down council estates and litter-strewn car parks of his hometown of Newport. He has some considerable weight to carry on his slender shoulders; before the release of their second single, Terris were plastered over the cover of NME, hailed as the new Joy Division. Certainly, Goodwin makes a good go of it--his twisted poetry is delivered in a range nailed somewhere between the fag-dried croakmore… of Tom Waits and the pained bellow of Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder--and from the rolling clouds and explosive dynamics of the opening "White Gold Way", you'd swear that Terris were dead-set on shooting the stars from the sky. There are some amazing moments here--not least, the furious gospel of "Deliverance" and the vicious, self-destructive "Cannibal Kids". However, on the occasional likes of "Bonnie", Goodwin's backing band sound a little too trad-indie to really make Terris a worthy object of zealous worship. You could put that down to deflated hype, though; taken on its own terms, Learning To Let Go is a fine scene-setting debut. --Louis Pattison
