The Minor Splits - Grandstanding Review
by Morley Seaver
This is a very interesting record, one that you can play for awhile and not get tired of. Lately, when I find I'm at odds with the rest of my CDs, I reach for The Minor Splits. I mean how can you wrong with a band that was influenced by Ultravox and Classix Nouveux?
The Minor Splits is made up two guys Michael Montgomery and Stephen Morgana. Montgomery is the vocalist and Morgana, chief musical director. At points Montgomery sounds dead-on like early '70s Bowie with that almost disembodied voice.
Grandstanding is a full-sounding record. When it's finished it's like you've just completed a very satisfying meal. There are no high or low points here, just a full record of really solid new-wavish material (think the New Romantics-period in British pop). Really good stuff
