Blair packham - could've been king

Faced with writer's block, former Jitters frontman Blair Packham hooked up with three Odds (Craig Northey, Pat Steward and Doug Elliott) to exorcise the demons of his mid-life crisis through classic rootsy Canrock. As expected, his lyrics are incredibly self-reflexive and a bit mopey - you wanna give the guy a hug, then shake the solipsism out of him. Could've Been King has that mid-90s crunchy-guitar/hooky-harmony vibe characteristic of Lowest of the Low - and, yes, the Odds - but bluesy chord progressions and some low-key ballads add an air of maturity.
