Colorado songwriter mixes obscenity and emotional heft with huge pop melodies
Fall : Touch sensitive
A jubilant [I]"Heyheyheyhey!"[/I] chorus, a bassline you'd swap your soul for - there's a wildly spirally sense of free-booting lunacy here.
Really, there's little to be said. You know Mark E Smith.
know his genius. You'll no longer know his band, remember, because they've all been sacked or left, but it sounds like the change has done him a whole universe of good. A jubilant
chorus, a bassline you'd swap your soul for - there's a wildly spirally sense of free-booting lunacy here. Like: "They said
about the meek/I said they've got a bloody cheek..." If you didn't know better, you'd guess 'Touch Sensitive' was a plea for understanding - at least, a demand to be left alone. Which is, after all, kind of the same thing. Whatever, it's arguably the most exuberant thing he's done since 'Why Are People Grudgeful?' and it will (whisper it) make you very happy.
Altogether now, "And you're dying for a pee/So you go behind a tree..." Summer here, kids. Best take a raincoat, all the same.
