Good song! Intro/theme is a copy of I’m The Fool and Brilliant Disguise, and the sound is Springsteen and a bit Petty. Nice organ, guitar and vocal. Like it!

Really great song in my opinion. Classic MK guitar sound, the slightly melancholic vocal lines give me remind of Metroland, and it overall reminds me of the feeling What It Is, Darling Pretty and alike gave me the first time I heard them. Had never expected MK to make another song like this and for me up there as one of the best openers in years. Absolutely don't mind the organ at all too. Instant classic imo, and hope to hear it live.

The best opener since Why Aye Man in my opinion.

The break sounds very Disney to me. I like it!  ;D

It is supposed that there are trombone, trumpet and sax in this song, but I can't heard them further that a very short blow at the end of the song...
You might get lucky, now and then

Interesting to hear Mark say he wrote it about the music business.

Love the song but anybody else think it's a bit close to Jokerman by Dylan?

The melody and delivery sounds the same to me, but maybe just me. :)

In the delivery of the chorus lines I can see a little similarity with Jokerman actually.

Mk says in the promo video uploaded in his Facebook that trapper man is about people in the music business, the managers, agents, promoters...
