Adam & Joe - Song Wars Volume 2 (3 stars)

Buxton and Cornish's second take on musical satire

Adam & Joe - Song Wars Volume 2


Named in an entirely unscientific recent Guardian poll as one of the top six double acts ever (alongside the likes of Vic ‘n’ Bob and Jen & Dawn), messrs Buxton and Cornish have gleefully held onto the juvenile exuberance that initially made them so popular back in the late 90s.

There are certainly some laugh-out-embarrassingly-loudly moments here with their musical satires on the gentrification of music festivals and piercing explorations of itchy bums (‘Itchy Bum’). But there’s an over-riding feeling that many of these numbers (particularly their swipes at Baz Luhrmann, Bob Dylan and Kate Nash) were thrashed out in a giggling 10-minute rush of post-liquid lunching.
