I agree about Audience - FFF was superb (I can't help thinking Jeremiah Caid was a prophesy for me personally!), and I'll never forget their drummer's bare-hands and hand-bell drum solos. Keith Gemmell, sax and cheroot, went on to join my all-time (including the latest line-up which is superb) favourite band, Stackridge - a co-incidence which then blew my young mind. But please don't call honest and passionate opinions 'blinkered.' That lowers you to the level of another young man of this parish with whom it's best not to bandy. Those who love L and L do so because it moves us. We were not brainwashed or duped. We heard the record and had an informed, independent and honest reaction. It slid into our souls. You would do well to understand and respect this. Curved Air were, in my opinion, quite good. Only. See? We disagree. But I'd never call you blinkered for liking sexy Sonja more than the complex, visceral, vulnerable and sadly venal Sandy. And while I'm at it - merely to prove that one man's meat is another's hummus - I love Joni's songs but could never listen to her voice. Still can't. Each to his own, tha' knows, and no need for insult.
