Editorial Reviews

UK band Gomez are set to release the new compilation "Five Men in a Hut (A's, B's and rarities: 1998-2004)". Through the 90 's and into the millennium Gomez released a total of 5 studio albums, all of which received widespread critical acclaim - with debut Bring It on picking up the Mercury Music Prize for Album of the Year in '98 - and with releases such as Liquid Skin selling over a quarter of a million in just 3 months. Now 10 years on, the finest of their audio and visual offerings have been brought together for the first time on Double CD. From their very first single 78 Stone Wobble and including career highlights such as Whipping Piccadilly, Rhythm & Blues Alibi and Get Myself Arrested, the album chronicles their creative history via a band-picked selection of A-Sides, B-Sides and two previously unreleased tracks "Old China" and "Diskoloadout".

Format: Audio CD
I've been a Gomez fan since 2002. I heard "Shot Shot" on Radio Paradise, and I was instantly hooked. I loved the sax, the drums, the vocals, the funky stops and starts, the electronic feel, everything. I vowed to buy In Our Gun. Then, same radio station, different day, I heard "Rex Kramer", with its cool harmonica and guttural growl of a voice, and was convinced I'd discovered another amazingly cool band. Turns out that not only was that also Gomez, but it was on the same CD as "Shot Shot"! I went right out and bought In Our Gun that day. I was an instant fan, and have been ever since. True story. Another true story is what happened the day I gave Five Men in a Hut a listen. I was facing the laborious and boring task of putting away a couple cord of wood. It was going to take me a few hours, filling a cart, lugging it up a hill, stacking it in a shed. Luckily, I checked my mailbox and realized I had just received my copy of Five Men in a Hut via Amazon. I dug out my CD player (yes, no iPod, not yet) and actually ran to the store for some batteries. I popped in Five Men in a Hut to while away the hours. Oh. My. God. I was absolutely blown away. I love this band even more now, if that's possible. I think this album is so brilliant to me because I've only been a fan of their recent work, and their earlier canon has eluded me almost entirely. Not including their live album, I had heard only six of the studio tracks on this compilation. I had a lot of catching up to do. And what a treat that was! The best thing about the band is how many different styles they touch, while still sounding like Gomez. They skew rock, blues, electronica, psychedelia, and whatever strikes their fancy into their own brand of utterly cool music. What kind of music do you like? You'll like Gomez.Read more ›

. . .and while you're at it get all of Gomez' stuff. Jesus they are one truly amazing band--three kickass vocalists, Ben Ottewell, Tom Gray and Ian Ball, who all play wonderfully quirky guitar to great effect, and then there's exceptional bass by Paul Blackburn and drums by Ollie Peacock. Their lyrics and arrangements are almost surreal, evoking a transplendent quality that points up their Beatles/Stones/Kinks/Who influences, while at the same time somehow establishing their sound as totally original. That they are not megastars is not only a true shame but it is also a sad commentary on what I think is the abysmal state of radio and the music industry in general.

After listening to this album (over and over), I can't believe that How We Operate was the first time I'd ever heard them on the radio. I hope they go back to producing their own work- Gil Norton is brilliant, but so is Gomez. Now that they have broken through, I'd love to hear more of their layered work. It's wonderful how good this sounds with earphones on and no distractions.

THis is one the best Gomez's work, definitively. They are loyal to The Beatles heritage, you can trace their influence in many of the tracks,as Oasis, Coldplay and The Killers. Highly recommended
