stephen duffy: seductive or no?

Remember Stephen "tin-tin" Duffy? I do. The first poor misguided lad who tried (very hard) to be my boyfriend attempted to woo me by playing me Stephen Duffy, The Colourfield and In-In-Information Society.

(context for that article).

Does he have a blog? He has an online biography: Back at the hotel in Swiss cottage I almost died by accidentally inhaling the hot chocolate powder I was tasting in the absence of anything else to eat or do. As far as accidental rock deaths go this would have been the most ignoble and unlamented. .... and oh christ yes, he does have a blog: I was not drunk I was just hopped up on medication and paranoia. Hmmm. Time for some tea.

Stephen Duffy, I salute you. You might even have been good seduction material, if at the time I'd had the faintest interest in boys.

I was curiously bored at the Chickfactor gig during Duffy's set; expecting intelligent pop rather than aging singer-songwriter. No 'kiss me', either, but he did have Cara Tivey of Billy Bragg fame on piano.

Don't tell me you know Gail & Pam too?

ah-ha!
I was wondering if anyone listening had been to a recent gig. Thanks for the review (albeit brief!) ... I'm not sure you could do a singer/songwriter version of "Kiss Me" (or *whether* you should, even) ...

as usual *grin* I don't think that I know any of the people you mention, but I could be wrong ...

Re: ah-ha!
don't let me stop you going to a gig, though, but don't blame me if you're bored.

G&P run Chickfactor, from New York and Peckham respectively. Unsuprisingly I know Pam better than Gail.

well, you know ...
... if he plays the Bullingdon Arms, maybe. Mind you, I keep saying that about Hazel O'Conner and each time I seem to end up doing something else.

(Gail and Pam) Ah! No, I linked to their site without having the faintest idea who they were, it just seemed pretty and fun (and it's always mean to link to a text box without referencing the site that pops it up)

ah, nostalgia

Also, of course, one of the few acts to have taken a Biblical extract into the UK chart.

His 90s album 'I Love My Friends' (think that's the title) is fantastic. The tunes! The lyrics! Really recommend it.

Re: yeesh
Doesn't look like it. Worth seeking out, though. I don't rate his 80s stuff or the Lilac Time by comparison. Someone I know has the album, I need a copy for myself so maybe I'll get round to getting a couple burned...
