Keith’s album of the month for December
What’s not to love? The cheesy harmonies? The cool tunes? The song about an old girlfriend nicking his old black T shirt and him wanting it back? The fact that there was only three of them in the band?
A song about the guy who had one too many leaving parties. One about sticking a finger to his old school bullies. All with a mostly angry (though sometimes quiet) piano. And NO guitar.
I remember picking this up when I was in San Fransisco on holiday one time – 1996 or 97 I think. It was really different from what I’d listened to before then. Probably the no guitar part!
Saw them play in Glasgow in The Arches – a gig underneath the train tracks of a railway station. Very very cool gig. They were so much fun.
I’m guessing you may all have this already, but give it another blast if you do. I did recently as it still stands up. If you don’t, then here’s your Christmas present. 🙂
