A startling mixture of comedy, music, cabaret, vocal dexterity, no-song-the-same hilarity, ranging from swing, folk, rock-funk-blues, cheese, show tunes and pop, making the every day into the truly epic experience we all know it is. A one-man Muppet Show, the missing link between Kajagoogoo and Mel Blanc, what music would sound like if an orchestra was crammed into Chuck Jones’s head. Elliot Mason gives you permission once again to love all the music you thought you could never admit to enjoying.
Amazon review: 5 stars - I love this Album, my partner loves this Album and our children made us play it on loop whilst stuck in a traffic jam for five hours. Hilarious lyrics, wonderful voice and brilliant characterisation. Buy it you - won't regret it!
iTunes review: 5 stars - Masterpiece. Elliot is a master of his trade. Had this on repeat all weekend and has kept a constant smile on my face. Comedy and music blended to perfection.
iTunes review: 5 stars - A pleasure from start to finish, "Life is like a movie" showcases Elliot Mason's immense talent as a lyricist, musician, programmer and humorist. Often surreal, regularly silly and always entertaining, it offers a window into the mind of this unique entertainer. This comedy album is helped enormously by the wide range of musical styles Elliot effortlessly offers to the listener. If you have an eye (or an ear) for the unusual then this album is definitely for you.
The Day They Turned Jif to Cif is the official entry of Elliot Mason's brainwaves into the world. Never less than completely sympathetic to all his characters and their idiosyncrasies and worries, this takes a lighter and comic look at what really bothers the people of England: moths on tellies, soap dispenser troubles, franchise confusion, identity fraud, and of course, Milton Keynes. Oh, and there's a guy with an eyeball on his knee. In the words of Elliot Mason: "Buy my CD!".
"From his delightfully off-beat sound check, it’s immediately clear he’s something a bit different. His musical brand of clever genre parody and surreal themes is the perfect fusion of Bill Bailey and Noel Fielding. Between his acrobatic eye movements, his songs about his “recent trip to the chip shop” and the hardships of having an eyeball knee, and his on-point pastiches of ballads and acoustic rock, he has the audience in stitches. It’s fantastically fresh and utterly hi-larious." Jay Hampshire. Hit the floor magazine
"Singer-songwriter Elliot Mason was an instant crowd-pleaser, armed with nothing but an acoustic guitar and the most bizarre compositions you’re likely to hear on comedy stages – much like his looks, Mason’s lyrics resemble a Wayne Coyne on amphetamines…There will always be room for a comic promising to punch babies in the neck for the love of a woman." - Erotic Review Magazine
"He's really silly and he's really talented" - Mat Ricardo
