Stanley Brinks - And The Wave Pictures (Ciao Ketchup)

Stanley Brinks was formerly Andre of Herman Dune and alone he still pulls the emotional punches. Well, to say he’s alone isn’t strictly true, as here he’s backed by The Wave Pictures, but the focus is on Stan’s enthralling songwriting that plays out over desolate guitars. Always at his best when he sounds broken hearted, check out the tear-stained Blues About The Size of Someone Else’s Heart, questioning 39 Winks and pained All The Love That Was Left. Brinks wears his emotions on his sleeve and few can match the heartfelt power of his songs.
