The original Poxy Music - the biggest load of preening, posing pseuds who made the worst cacophony that I've seen and heard in a lifetime (well, Steve Harley (but not Cockney Rebel) also gets a special mention in the 'preening, posing pseud' category of my diaries.).

Out of the audience that saw them that night I would imagine they earned the emnity of well over 85%. They were absolute shite! And they have done nothing in the meantime to change my mind.

Nah, that's just plain wrong. They were very annoying, especially when the singin gstarted. Sophisticated as Tony Hadley.

..Yeah that came in for some stick. And yet it's such a beautiful sounding record. I always associate it The Passions I'm In Love.. as both had this spacious, oceanic sound that years later would be called chillout or ambient. But back then you had very few records that sounded like that.

Anyway i liked it.


It's wishy washy, airy fairy, sanitised shite.


No, that's what you are. :evil:


Cheers Goldie. Good to see the token board liberal standing up for free expression......

I liked them when I still had my dashing good looks and when I still had my hearing.
