Split The Difference (Interview)

Contrary to their moniker, Gomez isn't a one-man band, but rather a British quintet. Describing their music, however, is no mean feat. Gomez combines jazz, country, blues, and other genres into their own unique mélange. Three vocalists only add to the challenge. Suffice to say, they make it work. The title, Five Men in a Hut, applies to a CD collection (sold separately) and this suitably off-kilter assortment of audio-visual ephemera. The twin releases capture their first seven years, while "Hut" refers to the group's now-defunct record label. Of the 12 promo clips, highlights include "78 Stone Wobble" featuring an ordinary bloke who spends the day upside down, "Whipping Piccadilly" with actor Toby Jones (Infamous) as a businessman with a fear of escalators, and "Silence," a rotoscoped riff on the brightly-hued psychedelia of Yellow Submarine (as befits the Beatlesque melody). Overall, the videos with a storyline work better than those without. A! s for the interview snippets, they deal more with life on the road than the history of the five-piece. The six live numbers, including Smokey Robinson's "The Way You Do the Things You Do," showcase the Brighton-based band in their favorite environment. Aside from Jones, the other notable appearance is provided by legendary bluesman John Lee Hooker, who declares the Mercury Prize-winning combo "very, very good." --Kathleen C. Fennessy
