simply red had some CHOONS.
i was gonna say they had some great pop soul records but thats a bit of an insult isnt it. so ill just say that simply red made some of the best uk soul records of the 80s. brand nubian wouldnt have sampled them if they werent legit. i dont know about the albums as i never liked them that much, but moneys too tight to mention, if you dont know me by now, and a couple of others, they stand up i think (not going on youtube to find out though as lifes too short).
re: take that, gary should give up his solo career and just write for robbie.
theyre not top of the pops, but they had some classic singles, its indisputable.
i know every single song on the smiths greatest hits comp (and hatful of hollow) but never got into their albums, not sure why. cant nominate the band though as morrissey is prone to spouting incredible stupidity and never seems quite as clever as people (rock critics) seem to say he is.
I just knew simply read would draw the heat in this discussion. My dad used to play that 1st album and it was fine, might even be a couple of deep cuts on there iirc. It hucknalls hideous appearance that's the real turn off unfortunately.
AND they practically invented UK funky with "fairground", remember?
just googled them. forgot about moneys too tight to mention, a new flame, and their cover of make me feel brand new. face it, mick is up there as one of britain's great white soul voices. forget rod, van, and all the rest of them.
