Desert Island Discs 71 Exit Music by Steven Lindsay
71 Exit Music by Steven Lindsay 2004
Another day another break up lp. Thirteen years after the last Big Dish lp , lead singer Steven Lindsay returns with his first solo lp of piano and string driven songs built around the divorce from his wife.
The arrangements and sparse and his voice has become richer with age, suiting the more mournful songs to perfection. It is one of those lps that is great to wallow in but be warned its not for those wanting a pick me up as beautiful as it is , it is a good mood killer.
There isn't really any bitterness to break the mood , only hinted at in Shoot the Breeze - and were you with me anyway, it is only meditation on sorry memory and regret ... a kind of how on earth did we let that happen
Goodnight by Steven Lindsay
