'Sane Men Surround' is the second album to emerge from Liberez, from the wilds of Southend-on-sea. It is a record that lurches around Britain's industrial past, and glares at its future. This is not the south-east of organised sport or wine-tasting, but of reduced food that goes out of service at midnight. It isn't even the bobble-hatted embers of London's fading media empire love-ins. it is an album with a brain and a heart, evoking the rumbling lorries of Essex, its scared sober marshlands, and peace riddled battlegrounds.
