Jacques The Lad

What have the Belgians ever done for us? Only invented pop music as we know it, that's what.

You can read my piece about the great Jacques Brel (who I've decided to henceforth dub "The Emperor of Death Pop" - let's see if it catches on) in today's Guardian. It features interviews with Marc Almond, Zach Condon, Neil Hannon, Gavin Friday and Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake - but not Joan Wasser. Sorry Joan!

Fantastic piece Mr T. I almost managed to set aside my distaste for the dreadful Neil Hannon and his Divine Dog Turds!
