Badly Drawn Boy: Have You Fed the Fish? [Artist Direct, 2002]
Damon Gough was never the sad sack speedsters mistook him for, but who would have pegged him as a song-and-dance man--metaphorically, of course, which doesn't mean somebody shouldn't send him tap shoes? "How can I give you the answers you need/When all I possess is a melody?" he implores, and for once said melody is the answer. It's the rare guitar geek who acts like strings and horns are where he's always belonged rather than where he hopes he'll fit in. The rare bedroom genius who's cheered by success, too.
