Fabulous Poodles

"Fabulous" rather overstates the case, but the Poodles have turned in a competent first-U.S.-released LP that is representative of much of the best of new British rock. Tony de Meur, lead singer, guitarist and co-composer of all their numbers, has a melodic sense of humor (as in Oh Cheryl, a schmaltzy number that sounds a little like Herman's Hermits gone calypso). This is fortunate since de Meur's lyrics are predictable, if sometimes a trace raunchy. The group's use of fiddle and mandolin is a nice touch, and production (John Entwistle of The Who shares the credit) is generally good. With a wash and a clip of their material, the Poodles could make a fairly presentable show.
