i was hugely disappointed with Southpaw when it came out but I listen to it more than anything else he’s done. The title track is absolutely towering, one of my favourite songs by anyone, ever. Swap Reader Meet Author and Do Your Best for Nobody Loves Us and You Should Have Been Nice to me and it’s in a different league. An early example of the duff track listing that’s hampered him ever since, most notably on World Peace which could have been a 9/10 albumBest Friend On The Payroll
Southpaw Grammar was such a disappointment after V&I. In retrospect, I’ve come to appreciate it more.
