This is disc one of the new Radio Rats ‘Love Train’ album project. Tracks will be added as “singles” as they are completed, until there are enough for an album.
I believe that Pop music ought to be literary in a way, minimalistic, but not dumb.
It’s not good enough to be able to play well – the words must be even better than the pathetic playing. The words of traditional country are often superb, the playing on the other hand is standard, but still superb too. Pop can take inspiration from Country brilliance.
Well, the 7-Single project could make South Africans as good as the best Americans, if it grows.
But, I ramble . . .
