Dig Nick's Mood

On 1998's Dig My Mood on Demon Records,  pub rock and new wave legend Sir Nick Lowe comes across all jazzy and melancholy.
A certain on line encyclopedia informs me that his middle name is Drain and this album will leave you emotionally drained - but in a good way.
Failed Christian is written by Paul McCartney's ex Wingman Henry McCulloch who is unlikely to get a gig on Jim McLean's Rabbit's Gospel Sunday any time soon.
The other track puts you in mind of those old gits who would never give you you're ball back and who would "accidentally" puncture it with a rake.
Song writing and delivery of the highest quality
