Stereophonics – Just Enough Education To Perform

27 08 2010

Listened: Monday August 9

I have fond memories of listening to Just Enough Education To Perform, Primal Scream’s Xtrmntr, and Sigur Ros’s Von Brigði (Recycle Bin) as I was cleaning my college apartment in Berkeley after graduation, preparing to move back to my parents’ house. I was the only one left in the apartment at that point, so I could crank the music as I cleaned. Consequently, this album has a lot of nostalgic value to me.

For some reason the songs remind me of Rod Stewart a bit. Maybe it’s the gravelly working class voice, I’m not sure. It also reminds me of the retro sounds of Ocean Colour Scene, who were active at the same time.
