Chameleons - Strip
This seems to be deleted now and is on the likes of Amazon for silly money so I'd thought I'd share it. The first fruits of the Chameleons reunion back in 2000, an acoustic album of old tracks and two new songs, one of which is the beautiful instrumental Road To San Remo. I know "acoustic album" is a term that sends me fleeing to the eject button normally, but this is a beautiful album, and the version of Nathan's Phase here might even better the original.
Soon after this, they'd release a proper new album (which as comebacks go was pretty bloody good) and embark on a reunion tour which I managed to miss due to being in my late teens and utterly skint. This fact still annoys the bejesus out of me to this day. Next time Mark Burgess comes anywhere near these shores with a guitar I don't care what I've got on, I'm bloody well there.
