The Delgados – Aye Today

You know I still miss them, sure we still have Emma doing her solo thing but it seems so sad that we’ll never get to hear her in cahoots with the rest of this precious Glasgow band again. John Peel loved them so much he got them to play at his one of his birthday bashes. They have a scatter of brilliant albums to their name but ‘The Great Eastern’ from 2000 is plain old genius. The album was produced by Dave Fridmann, was bathed in lush strings and gloried in the Delgados trademark off-kilter delivery. Up to this point the band had produced some killer tracks (like the incomparable ‘Everything Goes Around The Water‘) but ‘The Great Eastern’ was their first flawless long player. There are so many highlights it is really hard to pick one moment so by closing my eyes and running a finger indiscriminately up and down the track list I ended up with ‘Aye Today’. Something isn’t it? KD
