Gorgeous

"I first heard You're Gorgeous on the radio in the office. As soon as I heard the first line of the first verse I grabbed my pen and waited for the DJ to tell me who it was. My immediate reaction was Echo and The Bunnymen meets U2 with a splash catchy infection to top it off. Once I had Baby Bird scrawled on my memo pad I rushed out to HMV and bought the album.Every song was great. The highly addictive riff of Candy Girl underlined the U2 - Edge influence which was a positive thing. I fell in love with the oboe on Deadbird Sings, laughed my head off at Jesus Is My Girlfriend and drowned happily in 45 And Fat. Of course, You're Gorgeous stayed infectious and still is to this day despite all the TV advertising overkill - they are seriously using it for baby's nappies now!!! Oh ek!Somethings Going On was in the same league without the splash of catchy. Back Together is truely amazing. I havent heard any of the low-fi stuff (except Shop Girl - hilarious) but am wondering whether its worth splashing out on the box set.I'd love to see him play live and eagerly await some new material.cheers"

"I bought this cd at a yard sale for a couple of dollars (I love finding good music in surprising places), which at the time seemed a bit much for a yard sale, but I had a hunch, I guess. I loved this cd before the first song was over and haven't tired of it after playing it many times. I played it at a party and impressed my friends who were saying, "This music is great! Who is this?!" I guess they're even less hip than I am for not having heard of this musician before. This is high-quality and well-built music that is surprising in its lyrics, which is fine by me- keeps the riff-raff away."
