(Cat. No. SMILE42, Released 29/11/10, CD/DL)


In their 15th year and with new guitarist Leighton McGrath on board, 2010 saw Garfields Birthday release the follow up to 2008s very well-received Let Them Eat Cake album. Amongst the new gems on More Sense Than Money are a tribute to the loyal supporters of a weekly karaoke night held in their home town of Weymouth; a dreamy account of a memorable weekend spent in Cambridge; and the first ever writing collaboration by brothers Shane and Simon in the riff-tastic ‘Cool Your Jets’!

"Let Them Eat Cake was my favourite pop album of 2008, and More Sense Than Money is the perfect sequel, delivering the same gorgeous harmonies, catchy as flypaper melodies, melancholic navel-gazers ('Cambridge'), hummable choruses, and jingly-jangly head nodders ('The Garden Wall') as before. An amazingly warm and fuzzy achievement all around, lads. Encore!" Jeff Penczak (Shindig!)

"More Sense Than Money is once again the kind of excellent record that leaves one wondering why Garfields Birthday aren’t legends in the power pop underground." Michael Toland (The Big Takeover)
