Having just spent Easter with the Ma' in law, who's 'Church' but unable to get there now she's 91, this could be a very smart bit of Gospel.

I like it a lot. It stands head and shoulders above his previous e.p on Bandcamp. That is well worth a listen, in particular the hypnotic "The oldest mind" but sounds a bit ordinary in guitar settings.

His use of electronics here is more likely to get him a hearing. The songs are strong and can stand up to whatever you throw at them, arrangements wise. Go for it.

Well, I'm not getting Bell XI. Or not the stuff I've heard, which has all been a bit twee. What I did get was a touch of Blue Nile, while the wpc mentioned Michael McDonald - which maybe sums up the different places we both were In the early eighties...

I really like this a lot. Like Andy I listened to the Good Luck ep. Loved the title track, loathed Owe Everything. So a mixed reaction. The electronic groove of Saviour marks a great leap forward and is definitely the way to go imo. Not quite Harrods if we have to go department stores, but a good solid Debenhams.

His arrangement (and Bell X1 in this example)owe a lot to OMD. I'm glad he seems to be leaving behind the occasional Whoa whoa.

One of the few tracks I do know. Iggy Pop's Passenger lite meets early Talking Heads... Yeah, ok, some similarity. But the 'feel' is so different, no?

This track is just crying out for a band to play it as the vocal is wonderful and liquid. Oh, the inhumanity...kill the machines.

I really like this. I'm hearing more Bryan Ferry than anything else, and that's high praise. The vocal work here is excellent, and the song is very strong. I don't like the Casio preset #42 rhythm track--it reminds me of 1 hit wonder Gotye's tune-- but the fact is it lends a hip cachet (yeah that's perverse but I think so). I'd rather hear this with the arrangements/band from Roxy Music Avalon, but that's been done.

And Paul thanks for your extended hospitality. If I come to visit him maybe we you and I can go out clubbing and show them how the old guys can hang. I also proposed that we hold a Tuna Summit in some posh locale one of these days!
