Andy Fairweather Low: Spider Jiving
Tom Nolan, Rolling Stone, 30 January 1975
ANDY FAIRWEATHER LOW has one of the quirkiest and most distinctive voices in recent pop memory, and from the first bar of this topnotch debut LP it commands attention, inspires amazement and draws appreciative laughter. But startling as it is, the voice is no more bizarre than Andy's eccentric message: a kind of raucous desperation, a frenetic tap dance on the crumbling edge of reason. "There's a dead man's hand floating in the sky/ Feeding on people that are passing by."
