As we head out of the 90’s I suppose I’d better post some proper songs.
Funky Swing (and with Johnny Marr on guitar) Matt Johnson laments about nostalgia. On this standalone track to promote the 1990 compilation “The The Vs. The World.” that was only released in the US.
Sampled brass and heavy doses of melancholia, no one does it better than Johnson
“But now the autumn leaves are turning to the colour of rust
I’m getting jealous for youth’s first yearnings for lust”
“Beyond Love” is a great choice of a B-side, from “Mind Bomb”, it’s more of Johnson whispered vocals that builds up to crescendo. Produced by Roli Mosimann and with flugelhorn from John Eacott (who was in 80’s band Roman Holiday and Jazz band Loose Tubes) Paul “Wix” Wickens provides the keyboards with Danny Cummings on percussion. Now where is my copy of “Mind Bomb” ?
