I'll buy you bra's instead of pickled eggs...
on 18 December 2015
I'm relatively new to The Wave Pictures music, in fact it was only after stumbling into a small gig in Edinburgh whilst on a road trip for my 40th, featuring Stanley Brinks and Freschard, that I heard the name of the band mentioned (they are big collaborators).
Anyway, my friend and I consider ourselves to be 'song collectors' (strokes bushy eyebrow with saliva moistened finger).
We search under rocks the universe wide, trying to wow each other with diverse compilations of music that barely anyone has heard of; under appreciated gems that would otherwise fall through the cracks...
So it was that whilst compiling one of said comps, I remembered the name 'The Wave Pictures', by some coincidence the first song I heard was 'I love you like a madman' - which to my ears is a striking piece of genius -still my fav song by the boys. The lyrics are everyday and somewhat understated, but pure brilliance...("I'll buy you bra's instead of pickled eggs, chocolates instead of chutney, good red wine instead of bad red wine next time I remember your birthday")
I highly recommend this song as an introduction to anyone who fancies dipping their toe into 'The Waves' hahum.
Some of the other songs can be harder to access and take more time to appreciate...however, just buy it - it's 'REAL' music and that's something profoundly special in our deliciously evolved Xcraptor generation
