I think Down was compared to Leonard Cohen in a Dark Matters album review somewhere. I haven't really delved into his stuff. May need to!

Great song from an excellent album - their best. Saw them a couple of times in the late 80s with the original line up. Then saw them recently supporting the Chameleons in Manchester. McNabb still has a soaring voice and is a good guitarist. Funny how they turned from indie masters to rock wannabes. I suppose that led to them splitting up. I think I will put my LP on and it give it a blast. Cheers for the reminder.

Just been listening to “your disobedient servant” by Alvin Gibbs and the disobedient servants. Not exactly life changing, but really rather good.

Uncle Lenny is definitely worth a listen, probly start with The Songs Of..., or I'm Your Man.
But mibee not if you want to heard something like Down though, as it sounds nothing like Mr.Cohen :roll:

Anyone who likes Hugh Cornwell solo stuff should try out Ed Keupper especially his 80s albums. Great guitar, lyrics and melodies from the ex-Saints guitarist. Probably superior to Hugh in some ways but some will disagree.

I love the Saints- don’t know any of Ed’s solo stuff. Any recommended starting point?
