Monday Moments - Indian
Monday moments this week features another great lost single. Featuring a model and a former member of Brother Beyond the signs were not good. However, the lp 24 Years of Hunger somehow managed to on one level be the smoothest of dinner party background music, with a set of arresting songs that were full of interesting and unexpected little quirks that stopped the whole thing slipping into the land of the bland.
The lead off single "Indian" should have been massive and as usual disappeared. Eg has gone on to make 2 great solo lps (13 years apart) as well as being a very successful songwriter for hire (although the stuff he writes for other people tends to be run of the mill formulaic pop without the quirky lyrics). I'm not sure what Alice has been doing but she does pop up on Eg's latest solo lp with a co write and backing vocal credit on a couple of songs
Both the Eg and Alice lp and the first solo lp go for silly money
My monday moment comes right at the beginning with a good old bit of "whoo whoo whoo"
