The The / Matt Johnson
Matt Johnson was an original. 1980s theme music.
This was ‘coming of age’ music for me and the lyrics still to this day have some effect over the way I see things. Great music and lyrical depth. The addition of Zeke Manyika to the Lp Soul Mining stepped up the sound. The production value of Burning Blue Soul was not that great but the ideas come through. A very creative lp.
