I have tried to change CDs in the car in recent months, but can't. And as a result I now realise Shack are the greatest band. Ever. That's it.
And this is their best song. This will, however, wind up the purists, who will prattle on about 'Waterpistol' and 'Here's Tom' etc. To them, I'm sorry. (I'm not.)
Ultimately, me and purists know that Mick and John are the greatest unheralded songwriters Britain has ever produced.
And HMS Fable is boss because it is one of the few records I bought from more than 10 years ago that I still play the arse out of.
I think it is perfect. Literally perfect.
