Advertisements for my band – "Go-Kart
Mozart have offered us their contempt. The entire album is a rag bag of
contemptuous attitudes. Contempt for art – contempt for sex – contempt for
their country and most especially contempt for the audience that might be
listening. All this, it must be said, is not perceived through a tin ear or a
dim mind, but through a widescreen composition of what ails us most, while we
are lost in our fallacies displaying an acute distaste, we are forced to
finally see our own reflection and scream back at it in abject terror…”
"On The Hot Dog Streets features Lawrence’s dour humour and
melodic skills on 17 songs of such perfect wit and economy, you wish there were
17 more” – Will Hodgkinson, The Times, 22/6/2012
"Whatever you make of it, you’d have a hard time arguing On
The Hot Dog Streets is anything other than unique: the sound of a man pursuing a singular uncompromising
artistic vision, as he has been doing for the last 30 years. You might call it
inspirational after all.” 4 Stars – Alexis Petridis, The Guardian, 22/6/2012
"Lawrence Hayward, former leader of Felt and Denim, is one of
underground pop’s true eccentrics.”
4/5 - The Independent on Sunday, 24/6/2012
"Lawrence’s pop vision extends to sleeve notes featuring a reading list
and even a lonely-hearts ad. It all makes this a perfect album.”
5/5 – Will
Hodkinson, The Times Saturday Review, 23/6/2012
