best known for his work with reuben, this double album balances storming thrash-y punk with gentle, melodic tunes & marks a welcome return of a raconteur, wit & one of the best british songwriters of the last ten years.

to showcase the day & night / yin & yang / black & white aspect of the album, ‘muscle memory’ is split into two discs: cd1 brings together the heavier side of life. brutal riffs & intense vocals on songs such as ‘shower of scorn’, ‘the f*ck of it all’ & ‘fizzy blood’. cd2 shows jamie’s strength for melody & songwriting, from the beautiful ‘it’s hard to be a gentleman’ to the big band jazz of ‘pretty please’, to the intensely moving ‘saturday night’.
