The Lake Midgeon label proudly presents its maiden releases in the form of a one-sided 7inch single from Smudge frontman and Sneeze cohort, Tom Morgan. With Smudge on hiatus as Alison Galloway travels overseas, Morgan makes his debut on this release, limited to 300 hand numbered copies. Joined by Simon Gibson (Half Miler, Sneeze) on drums and Adam Yee (Smudge) on bass, Morgan sheds his slacker pop on Local Knowledge and Shoot First, Ask Christian Slater, playing with a new brand of vigour and enthusiasm, clearly pushed along by Gibson's energetic drumming. Smudge may be gone for the moment but Morgan's characteristically witty and incisive songwriting remains well and truly alive in this release, picking up where Real McCoy, Wrong Sinatra (Half A Cow 1998) left off.
