After years of recording as one man in several sheds, The Long
Con is the first full-on, full-band recording from Ireland’s So
Cow. Brian Kelly is this time joined by long-time foil Jonny
White on bass and the pride of Dublin, Peter O’Shea, on
drums. It’s also their first album to be recorded in a studio and,
if that isn’t enough, has an honest-to-goodness producer involved,
namely Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier. Recorded live over
the course of four or so days, the album is an attempt to capture
So Cow’s live sound, as opposed to the overdub-happy chaos
that marked the debut LP, 2009’s best-of-up-to-then compilation
So Cow, and 2010’s Meaningless Friendly.
The album was recorded in Ballyheigue in County Kerry,
hitherto and probably-now-still most famous as the birthplace
of the guy who coined the term “entrepreneur.” Saunier and the
band ran through the process at a fairly spectacular pace, most
likely inspired by the wi-fi being out of order. The Deerhoof man
himself makes an appearance on “Say Hello,” a pretty-muchimprovised
final day runabout. The Long Con follows on from
the sufficiently varied Meaningless Friendly and their half of
Out of Season, a split LP with Dublin’s Squarehead, in that it
zips around styles in a way that, to this day, makes their friends
find them “hard to describe.”
The band themselves are of the mind that they sound like The
Chills or McLusky, but they’ve lost all perspective at this stage
so don’t go taking their word for it. Similarly, lyrics telling of
joyriding local politicians, John Deacon’s post-Queen level of
contentment, and the terror of turning 30 can probably now be
interpreted any number of ways.
