More Power to Yer Elbow
Last of the latest batch of holiday Charity Shop purchases.
Elbow are one of the many, many well known and popular bands who have completely passed me by over the years.
I saw The Seldom Seen Kid and thought I would pick it up to see what all the fuss was about.
Despite it selling over a million copies and winning the Mercury Music Prize in 2008 to be quite honest I'm still wondering.
Pleasant enough but a wee bit bland for my tastes ( yes George I can hear you shouting "that's rich from the man who posted Sade!")
Can't see me buying any more of their stuff any time soon.
However they seem like a nice bunch of blokes and whenever I hear Guy Garvey on 6 Music he comes across as a genuine music fan
Elbow - Starlings
Elbow - Grounds for Divorce
