Released: July 2002
Take the insanely-young genius of James Skelly (just 21-years old when he wrote the track), add the veteran know-how of producer Ian Broudie (of The Lightning Seeds fame), and the results speak for themselves. The Coral’s debut album stunned like a cattle-prod on its release in 2002, such was its vitality and the wide-ranging sources for its unique sound. Country, 1960s psychedelia, sea shanties, The Doors, folk and more feed into the eclectic masterpiece that was voted the 4th best album of the year by NME. Admittedly, the track isn’t a million miles from The Supremes’ ‘My World Is Empty Without You’, but it wears its heart – and influences – on its sleeve.
