NICK LOWE - Jesus Of Cool

nick%20lowe-jesus%20of%20cool.jpgTrying on and sending up as many styles as depicted on the technicolour cover, Lowe's debut (released in North America as Pure Pop For Now People at the time) jumps from disco- and reggae-fied new-wavery to 10cc-like lite balladry, rockabilly sass and spirited pub-rock, already cynical as hell after years with Brinsley Schwarz and as go-to producer for Stiff. It's been a few months since its re-release, but better late than never for a mention on the site, especially considering the pretty-much-unanimous love for it among us staffers. I'd be shocked if it didn't end up being voted our reissue of the year!
