Anyone else like him?
with zvmbdmm -and when he was good he was good good good and when he was shit he was shit shit VERY shit
and classical pretensions for example
just keep them to yourself, Declan
However I do like some songs off Goodbye Cruel World
and his music is shite. Except Oliver's Army of course.
Shouldn't this be on the music forum?
I know is Oliver's Army, which is amazing. What album should I get?
is the 'classic' though, isn't it?
bits of his later, less new-wave stuff is really good too, but i'm not well acquainted enough with it to tell you what.
other bits are truly shockingly terrible.
cheers! I will investigate on ebay.
in st davids hall, cardiff a few years ago and he was magnificent. i was bowled over he was that good. my lady at the time had hardly heard of him and came out of the gig buzzing!
'82 is ace
after that, hmm
There's a Swedish band that's in the early Costello and the Attractions mould called Morland
they're on Myspace but their best tunes aren't up there - though 'The day when peace broke out' is a killer pop song despite Andreas wimping out on the lyrics
don't click on 'What's a boy to do'
unless you like Travis/Stereophonics
