Eugene McGuinness : Shotgun


Eugene McGuinness failed to capitalise on the warm reception of his eponymous 2008 album, and this new single seems unlikely to reignite people’s interest in the arch Brit arch pop artist. Lifted from the forthcoming album The Invitation To The Voyage, Shotgun relies on a sample of the Blues Brothers’ theme (actually the Peter Gunn Theme) for its character. Aside from that most recognisable bass riff, this song plays like a forgettable Blur B-side.
