Friends Again week part 4 - Bloomsday
Having a break from recording as the Bathers, Chris Thomson was joined by 2 ex Commotions (Neil Clark and Stephen Irvine) to form Bloomsday. The band lasted for one lp , Fortunay. Another great lost lp, the sound was rockier than the Bathers but the romantic sweep and big gestures of the lyrics remained.
The lead off single Strange Honey got quite a bit of airplay (at least that is how I remember it) but didnt dent the charts.
My favourite track had Syd Straw on backing vocals and Chris Thomson raises his game and does one of his best vocals
Forever Through Traps and Lies - Bloomsday
