The 7th album by The Puddle is George D. Henderson’s response to 30 years of under-appreciation for their urgent psychedelia, sweet pop sentiments and garage rock undertones. Secret Holiday/ Victory Blues burns with a quiet fury.
With their 1986-93 Flying Nun Records catalogue long out of print and a decade lost in the mist The Puddle have been making up for lost time in spectacular fashion with now 4 acclaimed albums on Fishrider Records since 2007.
“…articulate, challenging pop tunes… one of The Puddle’s finest efforts.” Otago Daily Times
“a tribute to an artist’s spirit to soldier on in the face of adversity – and complete their mission. More!” The Big Takeover
“Hugely reminiscent of Vic Godard, these songs could easily be from some long-lost Subway Sect album. And if that doesn’t make you want to investigate then frankly I fear for your sanity and your soul.” Alistair Fitchett, www.unpopular-culture.com
