If Bruce Springsteen, Kurt Cobain and The Lemonheads had teamed up for a jam, it'd have sounded something like The Doublecross. A pillar of the British punk community for years, singer-songwriter Jon Greenwood has taken a more melodic route on his debut album Things Will Never Change. With tales of love/hate relationships with women, alcohol, family and friends- Music does not get more personal and honest than this. From the dramatic opener White Noise, to the anthemic October Skies, through to the heartbreaking closing track Seven - Things Will Never Change is by his own admission, a collection of "abrasive pop songs". Recorded under a railway bridge (really!) on a shoe-string budget, the album features a plethora of guest musicians, illustrating how friendship and hard work against the odds can truly pay-off.
