Lead singer/songwriter Justin Currie wrote in the liner notes for the 2003 rerelease of Del Amitri's first LP, "Of course we had a philosophy so strict that it eventually strangled us. No chords, no choruses, no distortion, no synthesizers and definitely no long hair. Melody was God. There are more tunes between the twin guitar parts and bass lines in one backing track from this era of Del Amitri than in every top-line melody I have written since. It was, of course, a crackpot idea, but in my rock-and-roll dotage it holds a lot of charm. Whether anybody else in this age of entertainment will be so disarmed I doubt very much. It is a curiosity I hope, not a monstrosity. Too many f*cking words though?"
Not for me.
