One Plus One Is One





Since the late ‘90s, Englishman Damon Gough has been recording music as Badly Drawn Boy, slowly but steadily earning a reputation as one of the most creative and prolific songwriters of his day. After a series of EP releases, Gough put himself on the map with an outstanding debut album, The Hour Of Bewilderbeast. That record was one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2000, winning the esteemed Mercury Music Price in his native country. Two years later, Gough followed up his debut (unofficially) by penning the soundtrack to the 2002 film About A Boy, again garnering praise from critics. Later that year, he dropped the “official” follow up to Hour Of Bewilderbeast– hey, I told you this guy was prolific. While a quality album, Have You Fed The Fish? didn't meet the expectations of some fans and critics. One Plus One Is One, Gough's latest offering, won't be having that problem at all. Songs like "Four Leaf Clover," "Another Devil Dies" and the first single, "Year Of The Rat" are a return to form for this incredibly talented songwriter. One Plus One Is One clearly shows that while Gough may not be great with math, he IS once again at the top of his game.
