They're not everyones cup of tea, i'll admit
on 22 June 2003
Back in the day, the phrase "I like Sleeper" would instantly invlaidate any of your opinions on music, in the eyes of your peers. Yes, it was a savage time.
I found a tape of this when I was moving house, and it's just great. I will hold up my hands and admit there are some songs that don't measure up on this - Good luck Mr.Gorsky and Glue Eyes being the worst offenders. Remember, even the Queen is Dead (namechecked on Dress like you Mother) had Vicar in a Tutu.
Next to these are the shining pop gems that are Sale of the Century, What do I do Know and Dress like your Mother. Crowning this is the lyrically sublime and beautifully arranged Shrinkwrapped - insomnia never sounded so good.
This album won't change your life, but it will leave you bouncing up and down, singing along in husky mockney accent. And I for one am perfectly happy with that.
