If Semisonic were indeed semi-sonic, that would mean that they would be barely audible, and that could only be an improvement. Semisonic, in their skittish reconstructed way released a song called “Secret Smile” which was all about a woman’s bits. Had I been that unfortunate woman, I too would be at great pains to keep my “smile” secret, lest it be interfered with by another talentless John Denver look-alike.

They also released a song called “Closing Time” which is right up there with other drinking classics like “Tequila” and “I am a cider drinker”. Let’s hope they get a much-deserved lock-in and drink themselves out of a recording career, eh readers?
