These could be the best days of our lives
But I don't think we've been living very wise
Oh no! no!
British Rock is incomparable (setgelgeenii huvid ch, hugjmiin huvid ch). Hail Beth Orton! "Perhaps she is the most underrated singer/songwriter of our time."
You have stumbled on a great truth here! But there are advantages for our greatest singer/songwriter in not being yet as famous as her work deserves. Fame, after all is a greatly overrated commodity and plays havoc with one's private life! There is, however, an army of devoted Beth fans out here - possibly the nicest & most fun people in the whole world - who are well aware of our good fortune! In time the rest of the world will catch up. I see Beth's influence growing & growing in the years and decades to come, just as thirty-five years ago I knew in my bones that one day Nick Drake's genius would be fully recognised!
Thank you Alastair for your comment. And it's really nice to see a fellow Beth fan in my blog :)For the rest of you who's interested in Beth Orton, you can get some of her live performance songs from here http://aquariumdrunkard.com/?p=1113
