A simple singer/songwriter album with romantic (as in art) and surreal (again, as in art) leanings from the part-time Golden Palomino wordsmith and vocalist and former Slapp Happy wordsmith and guitarist. If it weren't for Blegvad's skewed sense of humor and predilection for slipping existential contemplation accompanied by noisy electronics between the acoustic numbers, this album could be huge with the James Taylor crowd.
Peter Blegvad (born August 14, 1951) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, writer, and cartoonist. He was a founding member of German/English avant-pop band Slapp Happy, which later merged briefly with Henry Cow, and has released many solo and collaborative albums. He is the son of Lenore and Erik Blegvad, who were respectively, a children's book author and illustrator.

Peter Blegvad certainly belongs in this company, except hardly anyone in his native USA has even heard of him. In his adopted homeland of England he's more famous for a weekly comic strip than he is for his music. Peter Blegvad has never been destined for musical celebrity, playing in 70's art-rock bands such as Henry Cow and Slapp Happy, then going solo in the 80's and side-lining in Anton Fier's mighty morphing Golden Palominos for a pair of albums and a tour. The album ends with "Gigantic Eye", a gentle new song that closes the album with an oddly abrupt ending. This album would be a worthwhile purchase if it only contained "Meantime" and "Gold", two gems from "King Strut". These are examples of pop/folk craftsmanship at its finest.
