Lazy Sunday - The Beloved

Lazy Sunday and top of the shuffle pile this week is a sing along summer song from the Beloved. I've previously written that I liked them better when they were an indie guitar band, however this skips along with a catchiness that makes it impossible not to hum along to.


  1. The Beloved definitely deserve more attention than they have gotten. Sure having blindly popular album at the height of the balearic/rave era of house will do lots to pigeon hole a band (One Dove anyone), but I agree their initial Indie, New Order-ish stuff is really great! But the follow up work that The Beloved did, mostly as Jon Marsh and his wife/girlfriend with Steve Waddington moving on, is really strong and not what would have been expected after Happiness.

  2. Hi Echorich
    have you heard "flimflam" it was an unreleased lp I think that just preceeded Happiness?
    It is worth tracking down if you can , it occaisionally pops up on blogs
