Badly Drawn Boy – Have You Fed the Fish?

30 07 2010

Listened: Friday July 16

Badly Drawn Boy sounds like he’s been plucked out of the 1970s and thrust into the 21st century. He sounds like Nilsson or most of solo John Lennon. He doesn’t write anthems, or even really stories, just mellow grooves. Supposedly one of his heroes is Bruce Springsteen, but I don’t hear his influence at all.

I think I let Have You Fed the Fish go too soon – it’s actually quite good and I should go back to it more often.
