Len Fifield: I Can Still Do It!
By Nick Batt
"Life begins at 40..." sang Dave and The Dynamos and it is about life and in a similar style that Len Fifield's debut album kicks off. Quirky lyrics with a predominantly rock'n'roll backing make this album interesting listening. Fifield felt there was a need for songs that reflected 'life's events' for the over 40s. This is certainly the first time I've heard a song about hip replacements or selling a house, although these days the two are probably closely linked. Normally a one-man band (Fifield does everything with his keyboard), he is assisted by Angela Duncan (backing vocals) and Geoff Duncan (lead guitar / production). The music and the arrangements are simple but provide a suitable platform for Fifield's lyrics. This album won't appeal to everyone but if you are interested you can check out more at www.lafmusic.com where you can download sample tracks and see a video of Fifield performing.
