Five on Friday Set 151

Posted: Friday, December 07, 2012 by Travis Cody in

I'm late to the party again.  I heard a song on the radio the other day from a band I'd never heard of.  Evidently they were originally formed back in the early 1980s in Scotland.  Then there was the usual...a commercial breakthrough, a quick decline, dropped from the label, lineup shuffle, resurgence, decline, lineup change, re-resurgence.

The song I heard was from the first resurgence.  But I listened to a lot of the catalog and I like the sound, regardless of the era or lineup.

So for Set 151, I present the band Del Amitri.  I couldn't verify for every song, but it looks like Justin Currie is the primary songwriter.

Have a great weekend gang!
