Which makes it surprisingly how little I care about anything he does any more. I think it was 'cos of how mediocre the Secondary Modern album was. It felt like he was writing weak parodies of what Darren Hayman songs should sound like.
It wasn't that bad.
Sadly I couldn't get his bluegrass album so far...
but he can do (and has done) so much better.
Not being a middle aged man and that, but tbh I haven't really listened to any of it since his solo album which I didn't listen to much anyway, so perhaps I am wrong. Still think he's ace though.
its all good.
is great. you should seriously try to find it. i also think that the critcism of secondary modern as parody of hefner is very very harsh.
it's so sensitive. it sounds like more has gone into this record than anything he's done for a long while. that's not to suggest his post-hefner stuff is slapdash, 'cos some of it's excellent (try 'the pupil most likely' off the first secondary modern lp).
