Of course it's a bit more complicated than that. Paul Hawkins and Thee Awkward Silences ' Apologies to the Enlightenment is a multi-dimensional hour and a half of 'life isn't fair. It's a record for the so-called creative classes, or at least anyone who has ever dared to follow a creative pursuit and dealt with the inevitable struggle entailed therein. So Hawkins sounds pretty pissed off most of the time. The album opens with an evil grumbling while someone recites the Lord's Prayer before rolling into a sneering, scratching, Scott Walker-inspired riff on human destruction.

It's entirely deliberate. I like Thou Mumbled Apologies quite a lot. Will you sue when I nick it for future use? It's something of a triumph really. Think some of the reviews are a bit off for saying it's a hard listen, there's some great pop tunes on there. Fans of this man's work and my blatherings in equal measure may like to pop back onto the blog over the weekend.
Eagle-eyed fans of the band will recognise the interviewer and know his connection with the band It's one of my favourite songs of recent years so I'm really glad if people think we did it justice!
