We’re spelling all this out for you, dear Norman Records™ customer, in terms designed for maximum recognition. We want you to memorise all of this, and we want you to do it quickly. Because there’ll come a time in the very near future where there will be no escape from the songs of this record. They will be on adverts. They will be on the radio. They will be referenced by Paddy McGuinness in his intros on Take Me Out. There’s absolutely no way that these tunes, almost Blairite in their populist ambition, will not be the soundtracks to our New England. And all this by an artist from the Rhineland.
