Phil Wang – Mellow Yellow (Avalon Promotions Ltd)

By | Published on Monday 18 August 2014

Phil Wang wants a one star review. Not out of masochism, but to complete the set, having already had a 2, 3, 4 and 5. The title comes from what he reckons are his two main characteristics: a calm demeanour and, well, he’s half-Chinese (he said it, don’t write in!), a heritage from which he taps a rich vein of humour. It’s not all gold the use of foot pedal effects, for soundtracks to imagined adult remakes of kids’ films, grows tiresome and probably peaked at the start when he used it to ask people to turn their phones off. Overall though, deploying a nerdy charm and ready wit to fine effect, he’s gone the wrong way about getting that one star.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 24 Aug.
