    Never thought I'd get it, but I'm being strangled by nostalgia - get back with the other band and save them from their dad rock.

    If anyone has the files for the "Your Covered" album I would be extremely grateful if you could share, unfortunately you would only get it at gigs in 2011.

    @KurtBell - you're right. In fact, looking into it just now, I see there are 3! There's J.J Burnel and Jean-Jacques Burnel which you mentioned, and also 'Jean Jacques Burnel' - - Looking them over, I see there are a lot of scrobbles for JJ's 'Gankutsuou' soundtrack, which probably explains the big numbers. Anime fans are a whole different audience that will have given him a lot more exposure just for that one album.

    @KurtBell - are you sure? I clicked on 'J.J Burnel' and at the time of posting, it showed "18,637 plays", while Hugh had "50,790 plays". I too would be very surprised if Burnel was being scrobbled more times than Hugh.

    I can't believe Jean-Jacques Burnel has 3x more listens than Hugh, i love them both it's just funny because Burnel only has 2 solo albums and Hugh has 10.
