3.0 out of 5 stars Some enjoyably miserable moments, 16 Oct. 2007

This review is from: Love Your Enemies (Audio CD)
As the main review says, it is indeed patchy but it gets better track by track. The very first recording was undertaken in a sports hall in rural Ireland. You can nearly feel the damp crawling up the breezeblock walls.
Sean O'Hagan's later career is foreshadowed here. His instrumentals are lovely. "Loftholdingswood" is such a good song I'd say it was worth the price just to obtain this quite powerful song. This would be pure Microdisiney, when the rage and anger of Coughlan and O'Hagan's melodic sensibility seemed to reach equipoise. The piano is haunting and the mood evoked by the song is hard to pin down. Maybe it's just the passage of time putting an antique frame of nostalgia around the misery years of the 80s in London. And, as a counterpoint, you can hear much of Cathal Coughlan`s future characteristics here too, both good and bad. The lyricism can be excellent but some of the vocals just too crinkly and dissonant.
