Future Bible Heroes - Lonely Days EP
This is the best thing Stephin Merritt has ever been associated with in my not remotely humble opinion. I got hold of this roughly when it came out and as I was living in a small shitty village dreaming of leaving I found it struck a chord. "And there's nobody to fall in love with, so I don't". Kitchen sink glumness summing up perfectly the true horror of the wilds of suburbia. Navigating cardboard cutouts and dodging early evening weekend television on our way to glamour, fame and fortune. En masse yet alone, here we fucking go.
Anyway yes. There is more than just the title track, an alternate version of Hopeless sung by Merritt and a fantastic cover of Love Is Blue are the highlights but it's all good. In fact it's bloody brilliant.
