To be followed by a lot of Immaculate Fools, courtesy of the new Cherry Red boxed set of their complete studio albums plus a newly compiled live disc. I loved their first two albums back in my college days but lost touch after that.


I wonder - did they ever stop sounding like Psychedelic Furs?

I can probably answer your question now. I had only ever previously heard the first two albums. Assuming there is a Furs resemblance therein, the sound changes thereafter. The third album is slick mid 80s jangle pop akin to something like Cutting Crew. The fourth album tilts toward Waterboys territory. That is as far as I have got as yet.

I did not realize until reading the band's website that Kevin Weatherall is now in his mid 70s so was a good deal older than his mid 80s contemporaries.

Probably one of the strangest CD’s in my collection-That’s All Folks! Cartoon Songs From Merrie Melodies & Looney Tunes. It is actually very well collated, with a wonderful booklet about the people who created them. Like any good musical comedy, the music has to be ‘sold’ and be authentic, so the orchestras and singers involved were really quite talented. There are snippets of some of the great standards here and there like Java Jive and I love to singa...by ‘Owl Jolson’ !  Cheesy
