FIVE STARS for A Larum
If you love the Pogues or Springsteen's barnstorming Seeger sessions then Johnny Flynn's the man for you. With a rough-hewn voice way beyond his 24 years, Flynn clashes together acoustic guitars, folky fiddles and tub-thumping drums with wild abandon. Songs such as "Tickle Me Pick" indicate a songwriter of real class and complexity. One of the year's best debuts so far.
