    Aw! Keep Your Distance is a pretty good album I reckon; it’s a shame it takes that particular wooden spoon. None more wine bar.

    I’d never noticed how weirdly shoegazey the sleeve is. Fix the slanting text, blur the logo and give them different haircuts, and the aesthetic is pure Creation/4AD circa 1991.

    Another day, another popular music figure leaves us – this time in very sad circumstances. It’s farewell to Colin Vearncombe, better known as Black, who has died from injuries suffered in a car crash in Co. Cork a couple of weeks ago. He had two major hits in 1987: ‘Sweetest Smile’ (which just missed the top spot but is rarely heard now) and the sublime ‘Wonderful Life’, which remains a staple of oldies radio. RIP.
