I really should like Richard Hawley much more than I actually do.
He has an impeccable pedigree, I mean to say he was a member of Longpigs and Pulp for goodness sake.
He writes good songs, is a fine musician and has a strong and distinct voice which puts me in mind of the likes of Scott Walker and Marc Almond.
He also strikes me as a thoroughly decent bloke.
However there is something about his music which I just don't get.
I have tried and will persevere in the expectation that someday it will click.
I don't have any of his albums but think if I saw one cheap in a charity shop I would take a punt as I think it's not him, it's me!
