Virgin 1990. VST1196
This was the final single of Robert Lloyds brief solo career. I’ve posted his two indie singles here and here. This suffers somewhat from major label over-production which as I recall alienated his existing fan base while failing to win any new ones. As a result it featured heavily in bargain bins throughout the 90s. However underneath all of that it’s a decent enough song, and the B sides didn’t suffer so much from the production, so are more rewarding listens.
The last track features Peter Byrchmore on guitar. I went to school with him, although he was in the year above me, so he was never a friend. The riff he plays here is very familiar – I’ve heard him use it live, but not with Robert Lloyd, or even I think the Nightingales, who he’s best known for playing with. It’ll come to me eventually.
