  • thinbrownduke Apart from some flashes of lyrical brilliance, such as the gasp-inducingly gorgeous "Cornerstone" (which sounds like a healthy blend of Oasis at their peak and mid-'60s Lennon), Turner pretty much peaked on his debut, IMHO. Though I haven't listened to their subsequent albums nearly as often, so maybe I'm not fully qualified to judge.

  • thinbrownduke The man's history is quite incredible. He once married 27 women in a single ceremony, and declared his house an independent state. Great, great musician - I'd recommend you start with "Gentleman", "Expensive s***", "Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am" and "Zombie". Great songs that together total nearly an hour of playing time! And re: Arctics, I'd always dismissed them too... 'til I heard their debut, which (IMHO) is one of the great British records of the century. Turner was a magnificent lyricist.

  • thinbrownduke Nice! Linguistics is great. You write very well; I thought you might have been in your 20s! And by sheer coincidence, your 'recent tracks' include those from the Arctic Monkeys' debut album - to which I listened just earlier this afternoon! I'm currently digging Fela Kuti - are you a fan?

  • thinbrownduke Your English is better than that of most English people I know! Are you also a student? I'm in my third year of university, studying History (but spending much more time on music) :D
