One band I really like is The The. Its a pop band with a twisted sense of humour that sticks out like a sore thumb in my music collection of Men shouting over loud geetars.
But I like Matt Johnson, the more whingey and whiney the better. Pile on the bleakness and quirky background music. I will not run away from your 80s synths and drum machines. Come to me I love you!!
Sorry for the temporary insanity but Mr Newt has just bagged three lps (Soul Mining, Infected, and Mind Bomb) for a fiver each.
