Richard Hawley

Richard Hawley, Just Like the Rain
single, Mute

A singer/songwriter is what we have here, along with his guitar and a sometimes lush backing which comes and goes. It's slick, has intelligent lyrics, and could entertain you and make you think, or it could warble away while people eat. Oh yes, and he has a noise voice too. People like Mojo and the Times love him. Well, OK, there is nothing wrong with mainstream skill but the person wanting this will be from he mainstream.

These tracks are from the album Coles Corner. (Thunderfinger)
