Truck On

By Simple Kid

An appropriately named track, opening with an engine being turned on and then proceeds to take the listener down a musical freeway riding on a catchy beat with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica for company. Now and then as it rolls through town it picks up hitch hikers in the form of cleverly used samples who hop on board and then get off a short while later.

Simple Kid can be compared to Badly Drawn Boy in some ways but this guy is far more talented and has a lot less facial hair. "Truck On" is a song that takes something from so many different places and puts them all together to make something truly memorable.

The b-side sees Simple Kid being asked to be "saved from this Darkness" clearly he is talking about poodle haired muppets The Darkness. A song that any decent lover of music should be able to identify with.

He may be called Simple Kid but he ain't no dumb ass.
