Fame didn’t sit easy with the recalcitrant Stephen Jones. These days he writes books, tinkers with electronica and makes music inspired by the Mexican Day Of The Dead and the lure of advertising. The phrase ‘maybe he should get out more’ is met head-on in “Keys To The Brain” and the typically trenchant “Jesus Freaks And Candy Asses”. Meanwhile, on “Radio’s Been Thinking Again”, Jones acts like a sponge, except the quirky musical liquid is never the same on its way out.

A neat adjunct to the Badly Drawn philosophy.
