the go betweens

Go Be’s morning here in the office.Part of the appeal is nostalgia based on a special time fo r me of getting deeper into music and pouring over liner notes and the whole nick hornby thing but what really strikes me is how little “literate pop” there is these days.What drew me to Roddy/Edwyn/Grant and Robert (postcard ?!?)/Moz etc was the amazing words,the storytelling.Not really part of a folk tradition but drawing you in in the same way.Hard to think of who does that now…
The Wave Pictures come to mind but maybe because the sound SO much like the Go Betweens and other than that people like Conor are more on the folk side and maybe its why peeople connect to Death Cab and stuff but I dont feel the same connection (and not just cos I’m old).
Anyway,if you’ve read this far and have any suggestions for great contemporary literate pop I may be forgetting please let us know….
