Rat Trap was good too. I quite liked She's so Modern but maybe it's because my elder brother had it on single (and the album A Tonic for the Troops), so good memories.
The Fine Art of Surfacing is a fine album too. Tonic is a cracking album.

Unfortunately Bob was too busy trying to feed African children instead of concentrating on his band and his wife and children. Hence Rats turning to shit, his wife running off with Michael Hutchence and his daughter turning into a smackhead and dying.

Yes, some ace tracks- Heads Will Roll, My White Devil (and The Cutter of course). I like Crocodiles even more. Their 1st four records were excellent. Ocean Rain was voted Album of Year in Melody Maker beating The Smiths debut into 2nd place and hardly anyone argued (I certainly wouldn't- it's the better record).

I also thought their first comeback album, Evergreen, was one of the best of the 90s.


They have not got another song in their locker of the class of The Killing Moon
Not even any of these?
