Misery Monday part 18/26 - Steven Lindsay



In one of those weird synchronicity moments there have been a few random posts on the Big Dish on blogs I read recently, maybe prompted by the fact that they recently played a one off reunion concert.


After disappearing for an eon after the break up of the band , Steven Lindsay eventually returned with the little heard lp Exit Music. Built around the break up with his wife the lp contains a number of simple piano based sad songs. It is one of those lps best avoided if you and your loved one are having issues, it is music to wallow in.

Listening to his voice, I cant help but think of the lps he could have made in a sabbatical that was up there with the Blue Nile

Shoot the Breeze - Steven Lindsay


Did you ever feel anything at all

You can buy Exit Music here (there was a follow up Kite which is a slightly jauntier affair... although only just)

  1. Love this album; works as a whole; always makes me think of David Gray's 'White Ladder for some reason. They've both held up well...

  3. I like 'Kite'; it just didn't capture me in the same way as the debut; that 'entry point' argument again maybe... 'Monkey Gone to Heaven' works well, but breaks his spell...
