THE ENGLISH ISSUE, SIDE 1 TRACK 5
SAINT ETIENNE – “Mario’s Cafe” (from the album So Tough)
The same scene, nearly thirty years later, and one of Saint Etienne’s most beautiful songs, the peak of the bubblegum-dub style they worked so fruitfully in their early days. A group of friends at a cafe in ’93, all-day breakfasts, the morning papers, last night’s telly: if you listen to this and don’t immediately want to be in their gang then you certainly can’t be in mine. Beautiful tune, too, and the lyrics are probably the band’s best: “Eubank wins the fight / And did you see the KLF last night?”
