Just Say No

Lost in the Dream by The War on Drugs sits next to Wall of Voodoo on the indie/pop shelves so got dusted down for a listen recently.
Initially I was not too sure of this record thinking it was a tad pretentious in places. The jury is still out although it seem to  be be getting better every time I play it - which is not too often if I'm honest.

I'm not sure of  the rationale behind their moniker but if ever there was a song championing the war on drugs it was surely Just Say No from the cast of Grange Hill

You'd be mugs to take drugs - just say no!

  1. After seriously digging 'Slave Ambient', I too found that I had to give 'Lost in the Dream' a bit of time to get a hold of me. Love it now though.
