Sugarplum - Crazy Feeling 4-track CD
Sugarplum is singer/songwriter/guitarist Anthony Meynell’s recording outfit. Bittersweet guitar based pop tunes embrace his diverse influences, a blend of anything from The Byrds to French 60s pop, Big Star to Bubblegum. Soft-centred, watercolour vocals are the charm and character of his music. The focus to the Sugarplum sound is Meynell’s distinctive guitar style, folk influenced acoustic guitar with perfectly placed electric guitar enhancing his carefully considered and intelligent arrangements. Sugarplum shines above the crowd with its musicality, and lyrics that truly come to life with heartfelt melodies. Forget flavour of the month, this is true-pop; a timeless package of delight!

Onetime Squire frontman Anthony Meynell is Sugarplum, and on Blue Summer Days he drops his mod attitude for a more pure pop identity; an intimate, largely acoustic record, it conjures memories of the Beatles and Donovan, with even a touch of prime T. Rex. - Jason Ankeny - All Music
