This is easily as good as any of the inyaface Teardrop Explodes stuff.
It's a very personal album full of well written, beautifully put together (with the help of ThighPaulSandra) songs about things that are important to Julian, and IMHO should be important to the rest of us too.
Topics covered are fatherhood, alzheimers disease, autogeddon, bloated corporations (and their bloated heads), love, mother-in-laws and of course plenty of dope and stone circles.
Go and buy it - 12 quid well spent. And I wish I had one of those 'Polite' jackets!
