NME Album Review - May 24, 1999 - 8/10

The closing title track of 'Fathering' is constructed around the sound of two lovers panting to orgasm. Rather perversely, they're both voiced by Mark Mulcahy- which rather suggests that since he's a solo
artist, he's something of an obsessive. Of course, that's just the way we like them.

Mulcahy was the frontman of Miracle Legion - a band tipped, at the end of the '80s, to be the next REM, but were blighted with contractual difficulties after they split with their label. It swiftly becomes evident, though, that in Mulcahy's grand scheme, Miracle Legion were little more than orchestral ballast.

From the opening 'Hey Self Defeater', Mulcahy builds on Jeff Buckley's legacy to prodigious effect, framing his acrobatic drawl with a few chiming notes and proving, with skewed elegance, that less really can be more. 'Fathering' was performed entirely solo; dusty elegies to fallen women, poised somewhere between youthful abandon and cynical voyeurism. 'Bill Jocko' is the album's grimy climax, Mulcahy spitting out a tale of illicit romance - lovers, "drunk on wine coolers that they stole from her mother/ Drunk on the summer, and drunk on each other".

Basically, his stories about other people tell you much more about Mulcahy himself. Still out there. A bit self-obsessed. But so what? 'Fathering' gives even self-love a good name.

Mark Mulcahy: Fathering

I first came across Mark Mulcahy in the mid-`80s as the singer of The Miracle Legion, who, with the mini-album “The Backyard”, produced the best REM album REM never made and apparently only known to a handful of devotees of Andy Kershaw's radio show of that time. After they split I lost track of him, until he re-surfaced in 1999 with an astonishing album, “Fathering”.

In his Miracle Legion incarnation he had a serviceable, but seemingly limited, voice, which was no preparation for what I heard: such a range, from a delicate, yearning falsetto, to a rasping, harder edged tone as the songs demanded. The only other singer of that era who I think is in any way comparable is Jeff Buckley, but Mark Mulcahy clearly made the wrong career choices in not drowning in romantically mysterious circumstances, not having a similarly tragic father, and not having Byronic good looks... More fool him... More people would have heard of him no doubt...

I actually prefer Mulcahy as a singer, because he uses his undoubted vocal talents to serve and enhance the songs, rather than imposing an excess of technique on a slight lyrical structure, as Master Buckley was wont, for my tastes, to do.

The album itself is a solo album in the truest sense, as Mulcahy writes, plays and sings everything himself, which makes some of the instrumentation, perhaps, a bit limited. This isn't a bad thing, though, as one concentrates more on the words and the layers of voices he applies to them or uses as instruments in their own right.

The lyrical concerns of the album are as wide-ranging as Mulcahy's voice. The opener, “Hey Self Defeater”, is a heartfelt plea to a friend to stop ruining their life with a negative attitude. “Hurry, Please Hurry” is a pure toned, yearning request to a lover. “I Woke Up in the Mayflower” is a lascivious trawl through drunken parties, with a delightful throwaway putdown line about women “who only fuck the English men” (he clearly went to different parties to me...), with his voice sounding rougher and salacious, but with a delightful choir of Mulcahies “bom bom”-ing away behind him. “Apartment Murders” is a nasty little song, whose protaganist is plotting the murder of an elderly relative in order to inherit an apartment, sung in a suitably wheedling, unpleasant tone of voice. “Bill Jocko” is frankly weird, both in terms of its mannered, exaggerated opening and its story of teenage lust, drink and the death of one of the characters. We close with the title track and its meditations on the nature of masculinity, male roles in relationships, different choices to be made, the influence of ones up-bringing on these choices, oh and a healthy dose of sex: this song contains the best simulation of coitus I can think of, knocking the likes of Donna Summer or Robert Plant into the proverbial.
