I love the Saints- don’t know any of Ed’s solo stuff. Any recommended starting point?
Two great compilation albums are Legendary Bully and the Butterfly Net. If you can't get to listen to these then albums like Eletrical Storm and Honey Steels Gold for example. I prefer his solo stuff to his alter ego band the Aints.

She’s great, i first saw her on Jools Holland and immediately liked her and bought the 2014 self titled album. When watching her on Jools I thought I’m hearing some Hugh-isms here. I don’t know if Hugh influenced her or not but theres also a video on YouTube of her playing guitar on stage with Hugh, think this is before she reinvented herself as St. Vincent. I can also hear a certain Mr Fripp in her playing.
Lovely stuff.

You can't go wrong with either of the first two Strangelove albums, IMO, but this one is definitely my favourite. I think Nicky and Richey from the Manics were also fans? I know Brett from Suede was.

I have never seen Strangelove live, no. I could have done as they were on one of the smaller stages at one of the festivals I went to in the '90s, but I was clearly watching something else (can't remember what) ...
