Oh fuck, that's my age!

I'm rather fond of the sunny harmonies and beautiful tunes on his four 90s albums.

(didn't know there was a fifth one, Dumbing Up, from 2000, and a drum-less live album from 2014)

Only know his work with the Waterboys. Extremely talented musician. Just discovered that he wrote "She's the one" famously covered by Robbie Williams. RIP Karl

You ought to check out his World Paerty albums Chris, I think you'd like them, particularly Goodbye Jumbo.

RIP
