About this item

Producing seductively shabby love songs, with unsurpassed dexterity and an authenticity born out of obscurity, The Wave Pictures deliver their debut album "Instant Coffee Baby". With lead singer David Tattersall and bass player Franic Rozycki growing up in Wymeswold near Loughborough, the roots of The Wave Pictures lie far from the scene centric commerciality of the prevailing mainstream. "Instant Coffee Baby" is an album so lyrically of its time it should be placed in the Blue Peter time capsule, and yet it's production is timeless, it's touchstones myriad (Jonathan Richman, The Smiths, The Go-betweens, Violent Femmes) and the performances little short of virtuoso.
