Fishing For Owls - 2017
Fishing for Owls is 10 songs of PURE GOLD. It's positively indulgent. Delicious, dark, sardonic, witty lyrics, there just isn't another band around that sounds like them

I've battered myself with the album. I Love it. Most albums are "This is my music I hope you like it" Not this one. It's more a totally unapologetic "This is the music of Paul Henshaw. Come enjoy the ride with me". Why move forward in a rut when you can plough your own field
Paul can take you from joyful irreverence and egoless self-depreciation to the most poignant and moving tributes within a track or two. Smiling and laughing one minute, you'll be moved to tears the next. Lyrically thought provoking and musically diverse - a folk punk odyssey just begging to be absorbed

So the CD review is done and what a classy encounter it has been. The crew apply themselves with thought and care and pour out many acoustic aromas to get your curious hooter around. From a punk point of view this may be too mild, too clean cut and too gentle for some - personally it only proves there are some right silly people about with no sense of variation and, may I add, taste!
What People are saying:-
It’s incredible to me how someone as glaringly talented as Paul Henshaw doesn’t have the same mass appeal as the auto-tuned people of this world, but I am also glad that he seems to be attracting the ears of more and more people in the mainstream sphere, so all Paul needs now is a stage, a guitar, and all those present will listen.

I saw this amazing band at a festival in Devon, Paul Henshaw and The Scientific Simpletons, at the end of the set the lead singer called me over from the crowd and said with a huge smile " hey buddy would you like the set list?" You made me feel a part of something, can't ask for more than that! "Always take the stage like its the last night of your life" If you are going to be in a band, this is how you do it!
You should go and see Paul live. He will take you on an emotional roller coaster and for the right reasons, you'll want to cry, get angry, laugh and that's what songs should do fill you with emotion.
We did catch the Scientific Simpletons, doing an impromptu gig on The Something Else Tea Tent stage, and they were brilliant! Lots of audience participation
