[14] Delays, ‘Long Time Coming’


While we’re doing hapless pop stars destined never to have the hits their music doesn’t make sense without, here’s Delays! ‘Long Time Coming’ – in all its joy and verve and pulsating radio-friendlyness – did manage to chug to No.16 in the chart, but as they cobble together a fourth album with yet another record label, even the minor hits have long since dried up.

Do I champion records no one else likes?

Don’t answer that. Junior’s considered judgement was, “I didn’t dance to that,” but she could’ve done. She really could. Granted, it’d be at an indie disco and she’d be wearing a baggy, moth-eaten jumper and stripy tights, but some sort of dancing nonetheless. She also said, “Uncle Paddy has this record,” and I don’t think that’s true. It’d be statistical madness.

  1. Whoever Uncle Paddy is, he’s written in to confirm that he does actually have this record and Junior’s either psychic or in possession of an elephant’s noggin.
