well, it struck me the other day... OK, OK, it struck me about a minute
ago... that I don't know the answer to this. Bear with me, though. It's
puzzling, particularly when his old backing band (The Woodentops) can
release a couple of albums, be known by about a zillion people across
the globe and even - heaven forbid - get both `proper' studio albums in
yer actual UK album chart.
Maybe... gulp... The JBC is not all that good? Well, you have to wonder
if he's an unnoticed rough diamond in a pile of loam or whether it's
just your abherrant nature that makes you like him. (paste my
aesthetics 101 coursenotes here) (paste extended diatribe on the fickle
nature of the entertainment industry as well if you have one).
