Waiting For The Love Bus
There's a clean, simple sound to a lot of this that Condition Blue
appreciate. I'm ten years older now than when
I made Bath
, and right now,
after all that morbid stuff, it only
really feels like about three. There's rockin' shit and there's a big
ballad or two and some weird little pop songs and a nice family
sing-along about penguins. I hope you like it.
Jazz Butcher has always struggled with its identity, particularly in
the U.S., whereas rave press and U.K.-generated hype has done
little to move Yank alt-rock listeners.
Of course, band leader
has no interest in being known as
spokesman to the so-called alternative generation, preferring to
see his slightly warped, mostly beautiful visions of
turmoil-driven life as nothing more than great pop music. And
he's got a point. Only openminded listeners need board this bus.
