The much anticipated first fruits of the collaboration between Malcolm Ross, the elder statesman of Postcard pop (Josef K/Orange Juice/Aztec Camera) and The Low Miffs, Glasgow’s young pretenders to the Post-Punk/Pure Pop throne.

Bristling with the kind of effervescent guitar-play you’d expect from a Postcard veteran, the single The Man Who Took on Love flits effortlessly from its Television-esque intro and explodes into the self-same virtuoso territory once occupied by both Sparks and The Associates, with an appreciative vocal nod in the direction of both Bowie and Scott Walker.

Ambitious? Yes, but in possessing an almost indecent array of collective musical dexterity, they carry it off with great aplomb! This is only one facet of The Low Miffs and Malcolm Ross, but gives some indication of what to expect from the stylistic diversity flaunted on the forthcoming, one-off, album.

“For those who've whiled away nanoseconds pondering just how Scott Walker and David Bowie might have sounded had they formed a surf guitar band, The Low Miffs and erstwhile Josef K guitarist Malcom Ross have the answer.”

The Skinny 4/5


“Featuring some quite brilliantly controlled playing weaving lovely patterns around singing that is part Associates, part Sparks, this is sonic sunshine to light up the darkest room.”

Scotland on Sunday 5/5

"Collaborating with pop-punk Glaswegians The Low Miffs, Ross' signature is evident. Indeed when he sings, pitching tremulously - to the left of Edwyn Collins on 'Kind of Keen', the skittish pop is compelling. On 'Mankind' with Low Miffs' Leo Condie doing the honours, it's more like Russell Mael wrestling with Kurt Weill"
