I'm sick of all this scratching around
I'm calling Fred to come and give me a hand
He's the queen of all the shops where he shops
And he's the king of all the scene, to be seen

    i liked them. quess they were kind of unpopular with critics because of their sort of 80s style rock attitude. they were not pop at a time when you couldn't be pop enough. it was the time of three minutes guitar songs

    Brilliant Band - just discovered them some months ago and LOVE almost every single song they wrote. Can someone explain to me why they were - as flanderosa wrote - hated by so many people ??
