So 2020 might be sucking balls in general, but Menswe@r are making it brighter with a boxset collection of both albums and glorious rareties ( that Childline cover of Barry Manilow…😍) and bsides and an official UK release of classic sophomore album Hay Tiempo!
I’ve always loved that album, used to play it on the jukebox in The Good Mixer and finally got a copy (pre-Internet ease) for 3.99 in the Tower Records sale. Classic. Best song? Easy, Every Sound’s A Melody is a glorious piece of Byrdsian pop and now, just 23 years late, it’s officially a single. Glorious!
