Richard Hawley : Coming Home
A very classy turn.
Hawley sings a little like Roy Orbison and writes songs as though he's a failed showman in
a scuffed suit who's turned to country, and possibly drink, for consolation. The truth is more tragic: he used to be the guitarist in the Longpigs, which makes you wonder how, with such hidden talents, he tolerated Crispian Hunt's sparkling combination of egomania and mediocrity for so long. A very classy turn.
