AGAINST PERFECTION - 20th Anniversary

Well it's been 20 years since the release of Adorable's debut album Against Perfection back in March 1993. To celebrate the occasion  I've uploaded an acoustic version of 'Homeboy' that I recorded back in about 2006 that you can download for free at my new Bandcamp site . It was part of an album that I recorded, but never released, almost like my own private, secret album. After finishing it I hardly played it to anyone, and I just sat on it, not quite sure what to do next. It ended up morphing into the current project I'm doing with Terry Bickers.

'Homeboy' was always one of my favourite tracks by Adorable, and was one of the first songs we wrote when we originally called The Candy Thieves. It was the last song we ever played live at our final gig in Brussels in 1994.

  1. Homeboy rocked. For me this line from Breathless could have seemed trite in the hands of any other band or lead -"I'm scrambling around on the floor looking for some fresh metaphor."

    Those years for me were pretty formative musically and Against Perfection holds up amongst the best of your peers. Solid album from start to finish.

    Thanks for a great album, will look up what you've been working on lately.
