11 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

Kendal and the others take the most minimal material and, almost rather like a sanitized Jack Kerouac, produce comments on life, the universe and everything from an initially mundane surrounding (but obviously in a more buoyant sense than Beat Generation writers). Where some would consider SOLO uneventful, I see it as simply understated - too much for the contemporary short attention span, perhaps.
