No One Said It Was Gonna Be Easy

It's been a while since we heard the dulcet tones of Mark Edward Smith on this blog. Time to rectify that state of affairs, I think.

Here he is on blistering form in collaboration with Inspiral Carpets. This was released as a single in 1994 and led to Smith's only appearance on Top Of The Pops, that I can remember seeing anyway. Smith has collaborated with quite a few people over the years, Edwyn Collins, Coldcut and most recently Mouse On Mars to name but three.

Inspiral Carpets - I Want You

Sheer brilliance.

Very good. Always thought it was funny he went with the runts of the Madchester litter (in the view of the press anyway)
