Highlights in Slow Motion


Highlights in Slow Motion

Highlights in Slow Motion is an acoustic rock album by ex-60 Ft. Dolls front man Richard J. Parfitt. Released in 2002 on Rough Trade Records. The sleeve was designed by Welsh-born musician and artist John Langford and embossed with a quote from the poet Roger McGough: "…and Cardiff's a tart with a heart of gold".

The album received favorable reviews in spite of a lukewarm reception. "Reflective new direction for one time Britpop hellraiser…the wistful bedsit realism of "Wish I Was With You", and the loveless companionship explored in "I Took That Woman Home Last Night", point the way for a brave and newly impressive writer"Uncut Magazine, March 2002, p.106)] . "The Daily Mirror" wrote: "…his songs contain a dreamy charm and tearful romance. A few more sunbursting riffs (the excellent "What We Talk About") and we can call him a boss ("Daily Mirror", March 13th 2002)] . "Parfitt’s thing is croaky, tousle headed soul (Chilternsic, Westerberg, Springsteen). The vocals are tremendously frayed and some of the steals are impressive. Whatever, this wooziness has a sure value’ ("Mojo", March, 2002).] Songs like the raw, nakedly emotionally "Downtown" or the superior Van Morrison-style conversational poetry of "Summergliding" display Parfitt's ability to mix adroit fingerpicking with purely pugilistic strumming."("Guitar", May, 2002).]
