That takes me back!!! A great album!!! Particularly 'Briaris', named after guitarist, Stuart's then flatmate, sadly, Louise, the female singer left Swansea to go to uni, and hence, left the band, but, she just so right singing it. Someone (I forget who, and am feeling too lazy to go dig out the record) covered it years later, and, while it wasn't a bad version, it just didn't sound right with male vocals.
The day it was finished, a bunch of us went down Stuart's flat for some wine, mellowness, and the first airing of the album...the singles had already come out, so, we all had an idea what to expect, but even so...a great album!!!
For those that are interested, Stuart & Simon still record on and off under the name "Mumbles', which is quite acoustic/singer-sonwriter type fare - although in a similar style to 'Jaguar' era Sweetest Ache, and various Sweetest Ache types are now known as Shooter, more indie rock than the Sweetest ache fare...both are well worth a listen...
