November #4 - One Sore Audience
4. Audience - Seven Sore Bruises
Back in the late 90s, I was very much taken with the debut album of pop-indie act theaudience (sic), fronted by Sophie Ellis Bextor: Janet's daughter, who would go on enjoy to a chequered, sometimes interesting career in the mainstream pop world. This was one of their best songs.
This post, however, is not about that band.
Instead it's about a "British art rock" combo from the early 70s who released four albums, the last of these being Lunch, from where today's track hails.
I wish I could tell you I knew more about this band or had heard any more of their music. Sadly, today time only permits me to write a post about the one song of theirs I do know, Seven Sore Bruises.
I came across this song via the blogosphere a few years back and stuck it on one of the random in-car compilations I create to help me discover new tracks that are hiding in my collection. I liked it a lot - enough to feature it here - although I honestly thought it was a lost Northern Soul anthem rather than a "British art rock" nugget. So we all learned something new today.
No video today as the song isn't on yotube. You can listen to it at the link below...
