Ezra Furman - Teddy I'm Ready

"This feels like an end of a beautiful, insane chapter for me."

"This feels like an end of a beautiful, insane chapter for me."



Banger



We're one restless year on from Perpetual Motion People and Ezra Furman hasn't stopped moving. And with Glastonbury under his belt, slots at Green Man and End of the Road and a UK tour to come, he doesn't look to be settling down any time soon.

To tide us over, the just-announced Big Fugitive Life gathers together a few songs in search of a home, starting with this Brylcreemed and chromed cut of soda-shop jukebox classicism.

"Think I might do something drastic, if they don't let me go," he cries over a solitary guitar; "there's nowhere that I can run to". So he's run back to the old world, keening "Teddy, I'm ready to rock'n'roll" as the Boy-Friends pile in, saxophone honking, sounding more and more like the E Street Band as each restless day passes.

"This feels like an end of a beautiful, insane chapter for me," Furman has said. This'll do nicely for the end credits. Rob Mesure
