Penny for the Workhouse are one of the most wholly committed to Folk n Roll UK bands with the eccentricity of Syd Barrett or early David Bowie combined with the olde worlde swagger of Victorian London… it’s weird and wonderful stuff. Somehow, tracks like Willow Tree and Smoker at the Window manage to sound thoroughly contemporary whereas ‘Old’ evokes the image of a music hall in the early 1900s.
