if stodge somehow could also be lean
if fare could somehow be plain yet tasty
if a band could somehow plod swiftly, nimbly
then the ultimate British decade-straddling scene-filler that's surprisingly filling would be
S-Quo seemed so boring and lame to me at the time but....
well, Phil Knight persuasively argued for the Quo fast-chug as a U.K. Neu! or something like that a mini-aeon ago...
still this one just is plod-plod-plod innit
it's a very thin sound.... the vocals are barely there
as though purposely designed for audience participation - sing along to boost them up in a matey sort of way
the sound is such a perfect homology-in-effect fit for bleached 'n ' faded denim
yes really it's only "Down Down" that is any kind of moment
like a "Silver Machine" that never takes off....
