"Charlie Ulyatt's 'Dead Birds' arrived at the 'Towers back in the early days of summer and I for one was captivated by his shimmering solo meanderings. The guitar in Ulyatt’s hands is transformed into a machine which suspends time as notes linger and hang in the air, evoking dry and dusty landscapes, barren mountains or at least the top of a crag in Lancashire. This EP was recorded live at Nottingham’s Rough Trade and features heartbreaking versions of ‘In The End’ and ‘Crow Attacks Buzzard’, as well as three brand new songs.
Of the new tunes, ‘This Is How It Starts’ actually starts the CD; well I never. It’s a slow burner; it’s not difficult to picture a campfire smouldering amongst rocky outcrops if you close your eyes. ‘In Brighton’ has nothing to do with that Brighton; there’s an eeriness to the briefly sustained discordance of Ulyatt’s playing, which dissipates into something altogether more serene. An enjoyable 20 minutes; short but not too sweet. Like my brother, in fact."
