Time to dig back into my musical past once again, this time for a band that released their third - and what was to be their last - album in twenty years ago in 1995. They had, pretty much, already hit their commercial peak by this point, and as things continued later into the nineties, sadly they fell apart thanks to other interests, record label changes and intra-band tension.
A private party, this one, I and my regular DJing partner nowadays AndyRavensable did the whole evening - for our friends Holly and EJ's 40th birthday at North Nineteen. Needless to say, at an event like this my usual musical choices were stretched in various directions!
In one of those occasional co-incidences that pop up in the music world, a couple of weeks back saw the release of new albums - comeback albums, if you will - from two bands who were overlooked in their prime and who only really gained critical respect in the years after they disbanded the first time around.
"I've been asked a few times if it's odd writing in a "woman's voice", but honestly I think everything I'm writing about is universal. It might be interpreted differently if a man sang it, but heartbreak, loss, and lust can't be claimed to be only for one gender."
Another busy month, mainly preoccupied with gigs (I saw nine separate shows last month). In between that, though, there has been a lot of new music and a lot to write about. Two interviews coming very soon, as well as a couple of new reviews in the works.
