If you’re reading this and you DON’T have this album....well, you might wanna sort that out. 😉
The best collection of songs from the songwriting genius that is Paddy McAloon. Some 80s music sounds dated now - all synths and superficiality - but Steve McQueen the album, like Steve McQueen the iconic movie star, is classy and timeless. Great songs are just great songs whatever the decade. This album is full of ‘em.

Listened to this travelling to Srinigar in a taxi from Jammu in Kashmir. My friend who I was with was on the hunt for soft bliss, which he did find and the next few months were spent listening to this, farting around and meeting new people.

I dug this out of the bins after a ten year hiatus not having a copy...i miss music like this. Sincere, fun, sometimes poignant, but altogether music you can enjoy on a visceral as well as ephemeral level (christ i need to dumb it down!!). This kind of music used to be called "alternative" when that meant something. Not too polished despite Thomas Dolby producing, sounds fresh and well...real. This album takes me back to the rather awkward days of my teenage years, and i now get a warm, comforting feeling listening to it and recalling the angst of those days. Comfort music for the awkward soul, or something of that ilk. Musically charming without being overbearing, nice incorporation of piano, a few synth lines, some good old Johnny Marr style driving Rickenbacker rhythm lines, an altogether excellent muscial. Add in charming, poignant, and sometimes embarrasingly sophmoric lyrics (all the better for it), and there you have it.
