MICHAEL J. SHEEHY AND THE HIRED MOURNERS - With These Hands: The Rise And Fall Of Francis Delaney (2009)

Perhaps the most underrated artist on the globe, Michael J. Sheehy, who fronted the stellar (and criminally unknown) London band, Dream City Film Club in the 1990s, has emerged with a brilliant album that is a song cycle about a boxer named Francis Delaney. The record explores his rise to prominence and details a sad downfall in which the fighter ends up with brain damage known as dementia pugilistica. In the course of fourteen tracks, Sheehy tells the tale through the eyes of several characters, each of whom add their own perspective to the narrative. Musically and lyrically, the album is a compendium of his solo career as several previous songs are alluded to throughout. In typical form, the record is both beautiful and profane, traits of Sheehy’s that make him so unique. With These Hands opens with a song that provides the general story as an afterthought in the form of “Did You Hear About Delaney?” Here, we find out that Delaney took a dive in the ninth round of a title fight, a move that he made for money, which not only soiled his reputation, but also ruined his career. The song is intoxicating with its reverb guitars and Hammond organ. Musically, it sounds like a cross between Nick Cave and Tom Waits.
