Perhaps one might have high hopes of a collaboration between Undertones (more HERE) singer-extraordinaire Feargal Sharkey and The Rezillos brilliant song-writer Jo Callis ((more HERE) , that is until one remembers how cold and unforgiving the musical climate of the mid-eighties was. I mean, it is rather baffling how many of the eighties synth-pop artists tried to ape American R & B and soul music by using some of the most soul-less, rythm-less and blues-less instrumentation and production of all time. Sometimes, like say Soft Cell's distortion of "Tainted Love" it clicked but so much of the time it was just painful. 'Twas a weird decade, the eighties...
Here's "Loving You" attached to the 1991 "I've Got News For You" e.p., which also includes the follow-up smash hit, "A Good Heart' making it like a CD-Maxi-single Greatest Hits.
So MRML readers any comments on Feargal's solo work? Is it gonna be brickbats or crickets in the comments section? Awaiting your reply...
