heard on the wire

Well I tried but I can’t behave like others

I am a lucky soul, I discovered Lucky Soul, the finest among several fine bands who, in recent years, have drawn their inspiration from the 60s to make thoroughly 21st century pop records

I first heard the single, Lips are Unhappy and was charmed without being wowed. But charmed enough to buy the debut LP, The Great Unwanted, and very quickly fell in love.

So much so that Lips are Unhappy could easily have been my 2007 song-from-each-year-of-my-life, but instead I’ve plumped for another track from the LP, that was so good they named a major Hollywood movie after it.
