Born from anxiety and fuelled by a crippling need for validation and success, Secretly Canadian re-release: 'Jumping the Shark' by Alex Cameron. This collection of short tales documents the bankrupt and morally vacant world of contemporary showbiz. Voiced by a forgotten variety show host, Ken DuPont, 'Jumping the Shark' explores issues such as guilt and humiliation in a world where everyone is to blame for an entire industry's failure - everyone except themself. 'Jumping the Shark' is as confronting as it is uplifting.åÊ A revelation of an album not to be taken sitting down. If you like Flash and The Pan, The Reels, Angelo Badalamenti, John Maus, Robert Palmer, Lou Reed or Ryuichi Sakamoto then this is a strong recommendation for you.
