I have finally got round to listening to Beat Science, music made my old university friend Chris Flackett and his friend Daniel Horton. To be honest, Chris has been asking to give it a listen for a while, but I’ve been putting it off, not knowing what to expect nor whether I’d be able to do it justice. However, I clicked the appropriate link this afternoon, and was instantly impressed. Chris is a very clever guy and a skilled wordsmith, and Daniel Horton has put his thought-provoking, angsty lyrics to some very cool tunes. Together, they form music which comments on the modern world; I like it very much, especially the cynicism directed at David CaMoron and his ‘big society’.
