C'mon People (We're Making It Now) (Hut)







Whoa, man, it's hard being a part-time messiah. Just ask Richard

Ashcroft
. Since Ashie's made an honest woman out of Kate

Radley
, even the most casual observer must harbour suspicions that domestic

bliss is hardly a fount of boundless inspiration. So yeah, whoa yeah, 'C'mon

People (We're Making It Now)'
- what's all that about then?



A touching

ditty penned to commemorate the building of a Wendy house? A jaunty tune to

whistle to Kate while she's mashing up banana for lil' Sonny's

din-dins? Something for Chris Moyles to segue into The Corrs come

drivetime? God, it feels shameful to diss Ashcroft - he's undoubtedly got

that precious, unquantifiable something that elevates him above the dismal

singer-songwriter crop. But right now, his is a hollow gospel, the sound of

sporadic genius prolapsed senselessly into bland FM-rock sludge.



Yeah yeah.

Whoa yeah. Ho hum.
