A great, gritty pop song with some really fantastic lyrics.
"You think that you know tragedy? William Shakespeare's got fuck all on me".
A lazy comparison would be to Belle & Sebastian, but Tompaulin are really worthy of being taken on their won terms. The whole album is just brilliant.
from The Town and The City (Ugly Man MAN 3), available on CD
exceptional song about love and life in smalltown northern england. A fabulousopening line 'I know she has a boyfriend and I guess we both take turns,he gets hot meals his washing done,I get carpet burns' All the things you loved about the Smiths, a quiet piano led intro bashed into submission by noisy guitars and drums and then back to the quiet bit. Wonderful, buy it.
from the single My Life As A Carcrash (Action) available on CD - My Life As A Carcrash (Action)
