Stangely enough, the opening track,'Hannah', bears some resemblance to 'I Wanna Be Adored', the first song on the Stone Roses' eponymous debut. As it slides away elegantly, it gives way to the shimmering 'Shine On' (the band's only Top 20 hit). The rest of Side 1 (I'm talking in vinyl terms here) is equally impressive, apart from the lumpen 'The Hedonist'.
'I Don't Know Why I Love You' is a rollicking rock song, kicked into life by a guitar riff similar to The Only Ones' 'Another Girl, Another Planet.'
Side 2 opens with the brusque, tumbling 'Never', derided at the time as a poor follow-up to 'I Don't Know Why....', but now sounding fine to these ears. 'Someone's Got To Love You' is a sad, silky love song, but the highlight for me is the next track, 'In A Room.' There's a real sense of drama and momentum in this song,and the lyrics are more straightforward, less opaque, than on other tracks - "When I'm drunk in a room, that's when I think of you."
In retrospect, Guy Chadwick and Co were just born 10 years too early. You can hear echoes of their work in bands of today like Coldplay and Snow Patrol. The same keening, shimmering guitars, the same sense of drama and dynamics. Yeah, they coulda been superstars, but for an accident of birth.
The album ,like many a great album from that era has long been out of print , but is now available again in a gatefold cardboard sleeve with extensive liner notes . Rejoice. The thing about this album is it was released at a time when guitar bands were taking it to extraordinary new extremes so it's hazy chords refracted through a gauze of psychedelic influences sounded somewhat conventional, even though in actual fact they weren't , but Chadwick was a great song writer and its his almost effortless mastery of that particular speciality that makes this debut album so outstanding.
The album has outstanding imperative tracks like the swaggering "Salome" alongside shimmering taut ballads like "Love In A Car" or "Man To Child" . "Happy" cleverly strides between the two with coalescent reverb drenched bursts set against delicate fronds of sound. "Fisherman's Tale" revolves around chunkier reticulated chords while "Road" clenches the spangled layers of guitar around a muscular chorus with tense percussion. "Hope" tangles gossamer chords over a gorgeous melody and Chadwick's sometimes inspired , sometimes trite lyrics.Read more ›
The problem was their music just did not fit into a niche which the music press loves to do and then "baggy" hit and the stone roses/happy mondays took the presses attention away. superb guitar and great songwriting still shine through though now!
Shame they split up because they were superb.
Seen them in concert lots of times and those times were one of the best of my life.
Talented, talented band...
