Thorny Questions

"Tracey Thorn’s new solo album, Love And Its Opposite, is a quietly extraordinary record, eschewing the fireworks of grand passion to explore the niggles and neuroses bubbling below the surface of many long-term relationships." I talk to Thorn about her ace new album here.

I also recently caught up with Sandi Thom, who’s gone from much-maligned internet ‘sensation’ to gnarled Blues warbler. Odd. More here.

A lovely piece on TT Graeme.

It's funny, she and Ben seem to have struck just the right note for their relationship.

Having children, etc. it's a small miracle she was able to release this rather brave, extraordinary little release about a subject that is so far from the norm it's courageously refreshing.

I can't say that I love it musically, but I'll have to give it time.

Anyway, interesting interview. It did feel like EBTG disappeared for quite some time, but family has a lot to do with our rather disconnected lives from the rest of the world. Thanks.
