Momus: Don’t Stop The Night


Rough Trade 1989.  RTD137


I’m not sure why I have a German copy of this – the UK issue was of course on Creation.  It was the follow up to the rather wonderful Tender Pervert, and while it continued his great songwriting and his especially sharp lyrics, it marked the start of his irritating journey into third rate electronica.  It’s best to try to screen that out and concentrate on what Momus does best – if you do, the album will reward your efforts.

The album includes a favourite of mine, Right Hand Heart which I’ve already posted a demo version of.  The demo is such a favourite that I’ve done a shiny new rip of it because my new cartridge picks up a lot less surface noise.  Get it here.
