God I so wanted to love this track before I even took the CD from its sleeve. I wasn’t disappointed – not in the slightest. Opening with a beautiful piano intro, Dead Meat dances and sweeps along in a fanciful and musically luscious way as Lennon’s soft but rather stern vocals float over the track like a dreamy waltz in a fairground.
The lyrics are sincere and bold, the strings intensify the quality and the professionalism shown here. Dead Meat is taken from Sean’s second album, Friendly Fire, released on 2nd October 2006 and I am going to snap up a copy, as it is clear there is a wealth of creativity to behold from this boy.
