A few words on Stepping On Lego by;

Tom Robinson - London-based broadcaster & songwriter, born 1950. His best known songs are 2-4-6-8 Motorway, Glad To Be Gay and War Baby; he has also co-written songs with Peter Gabriel, Elton John, Dan Hartman and Manu Katché. 

"We've long been fans of Cam Allen’s Pollen project here at Fresh On the Net and on The BBC Introducing Mixtape. Formed in another hemisphere back in 1995, the lineup has been fluid with periodic changes over the years much like The Waterboys, Dexys or The Fall. At the beginning of 2013 Pollen was a long-distance collaboration between bassist Chris Boughton in Japan and Cam on guitar and vocals back in the UK. Subsequent recording sessions in Helsinki for a sophomore album called Our Frozen Sea produced This Isn’t California  – a Fresh Favein September last year.  But those ongoing sessions have resulted in a long-term relocation for the band to Finland together with a new lineup – which sees Cam joined by the rhythm section of Jake McMullen and Michael Lennie.

And so here we are 15 months later with Stepping On Lego: two minutes and fifteen seconds of mesmeric and irresistible guitar rock, recorded with no bells and very few whistles. Or in this case very few overdubbed guitar lines blending seamlessly into the arrangement. It’sperformance of real swagger and assurance, made by musicians who know exactly what they’re doing. So often, guitar bands who can really play over-compress their sound so that the vocal ends up fighting to be heard over the resulting wall of sound. Regardless of how many copies it ultimately ends up selling, this here is a hit – a palpable hit".
