The second of my 'one band one day' projects focused on Tindersticks
, whose smoky, seductive music has been charming me since I first heard Marbles
And then I gave their second album a listen...
Looking back, it’s a little disappointing that one of my most treasured musical moments took place in a city center branch of a well-known high street music chain. I could have at least been in some obscure independent backwater or smoky den. Still – talk about juxtaposition: a scruffy student in a brightly lit store, stickers all around imploring me, enticing with their offers and exclamations. On my head, cans with God knows how many varieties of dead hair, dead cells.
But when you’re listening to ‘El Diablo en el ojo’, from Tindersticks’ second album and, in the modern internet parlance, literally having your mind blown by the experience, you feel instantly transported.
