‘Jollification’ was, i think, the first album i ever bought.

Sense is properly sublime. Found Terry Hall’s vocals a bit of an acquired taste at first mind… they don’t really seem like they go with Broudie’s

I think it was my second.

Heard it a million times but it’s still so good

Jesus, Ian Broudie’s let himself go.

Thanks for posting that video by the way, it’s like the innocence of the early-to-mid 90s bottled…and according to the comments Bernard Sumner is a fan.

Remember getting their ‘Like You Do…’ best of for Christmas as a 14yo when I was just getting into music and I absolutely rinsed it. Great memories. Might have to dig it out again…

One of the best best ofs! I have memories of doing maths homework to it - even that doesn’t sully it.

They have an earlier compilation-of-sorts called ‘Pure Lightning Seeds’, recommend checking it out - it’s on Sp****y.
