‘Everybody’s second favourite band’ - fuck off, they are absolute toilet.

Song for whoever’s probably my second favourite after I’ll sail this ship alone.

Been watching this a lot to cheer myself up over the last few days.

I’m going to enjoy it even harder now.

I’m surprised Bell Bottomed Tear isn’t on that best of though cause it’s probs their best song imo

Hate them with a passion

Putting this on mute now, see ya

Definitely my second favourite. The Los Campesinos version is good too.

I have got a lot of time for Paul Heaton but I have to be honest - I preferred his earlier work

Thanks for stopping by.

The Prettiest Eyes is the best one.

They always seem to think their lyrics were cleverer than they actually were and there was a certain smugness. But they did have a few good tunes

I always thought that it was a bit sad that when the main songwriters / front people decided to knock it on the head, the rest of the band continued touring and playing the same old songs under the name The South.

Just a band specialising in hold music tbf tbh

I did A Little Time on karaoke in a Soho pub over Christmas, a punter described it as “terrifying”.
