THE WONDER STUFF / Never Loved Elvis (1991)

The 'Stuffies third album was the one that got them media attention in the UK, which is surprising, considering their previous album is arguably more accessible. Sure, NLE has some great Pop songs that deserved to be hits, but the record-buying public don't often embrace songs that contain fiddle, banjo, mandolin and accordion. Its success is a triumph for good songs from good songwriters!
In a similar way to how shots of bourbon complement the blues, half a dozen cold beers in a student bar increase my enjoyment of NLE.
