After several fine folksy acoustic outings, Stephen Cummings comes rarin' back with Tickety Boo a collection of catchy, electric guitar based pop/rock.
If you're a fan of Stephen's work with The Sports, check this out. Influenced in equal parts by The Kinks, The Move and Boz Scaggs, the songs are smart and hooky and are a mixture of alt-rock and lush pop. Cummings has made a return to garage rock. "Now Here She Comes" is a hit single!
Tickety Boo was produced by Billy Miller, known for his droll and quirky sound with The Ferrets. Miller's chiming guitar instills lustre to songs like "Happy City" and "Don't Use The Telephone". As usual, Cummings' voice is in top pop form, carving up the scatty title song as aptly as his ode to comedy legend Bob Hope "Bob Hope and the Death Of Vaudeville and Television" or his salute to French filmmaker Jean Luc Godard "Girl and A Gun".
