I have just bought POrcupine, which I have never heard.
But am v familiar with Heaven Up Here, which is quiteawesome, but mired slightlym in thrall to Television and post punk monochrome.
Ocean Rain Or Porcupine?
I had Porcupine when it came out and thought it untoppable. Really stretched their shit out on this one. Not even really rock'n'roll, is it.
Then Ocean Rain came and it shone brighter. Now it seems a bit, hmmmm just a bit mind, "Pete Wylie, Macca, bring tha fookin professional scouse Philharmonic round, give me some chazz and let 'em do the work, la". If you know what I mean.
Now I am also a bit less bound up in his non sequiturtastic cosdwallop and think Porcupine, edges it.
Cos it has edge. Edgey edgey edge.
Mainly cos of Clay.
God I could listen to that song all day long.
But yes, Mr Ocean Rain, after that, it was all a bit like aband who sound exactly like the Bunnymen, to a T, but arent quite so good.
Fucking bravo to Mac tho.
Good fuckin band, la
