Colin Newman

Colin Newman’s solo output is largely and criminally overlooked. After exhausting the Wire discography and generally being more fond of their more melodic moments his solo explorations throughout the 80’s are something of a godsend. Like any good solo undertaking, his best songs are found the deeper in you dig. I’ll never understand the phenomena, the only thing I can think of is that when those briefly cast aside peak creative moments occur they need just a bit longer to ruminate and by that time the record has been sent off. Like those same forces at play when your soon to be favorite album doesn’t make complete sense at first but leaves you longing for it all the same.

One of his more optimistic tracks, I think it’s my favorite song he’s ever done. It also just happens to be one of his hardest songs to find.
