I heard Captain on 6music today - but at first I thought to myself as I pondered English Breakfast or Jasmine tea, "why are they playing LP tracks from the first 2 Deacon Blue albums or is it something rejected from Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk" - or could it be a side project featuring Clark Datchler from johhny Hates Jazz?" - sorry but Radio 2 in 1991 would have deemed this song 'utterly needless' for crying out loud.
i then heard Pete & the Pirates - this I have to say was excellent - I'd hazard the hollies meet Truman's Water on the latter's more melodic outings
And then the Wonder Stuff meet The Men They Couldn't Hang. Yes Larrikin Love - but then I thought about all the teenage bands I'd watched/been in at college and think about their mums at the back of the hall tapping their flatheeled foot and then realised we're all just meant to be Larrikin Love's proud parents telling them how good the painting they've just brought home from school is.
For the record I had English Breakfast.
