...since 1990... great emotions, and delightful atmospheres. Subtil and nostalgic.

One of the great undiscovered bands from the UK, a subtle balance of power and calm, melody and beautiful lyrics. The new album, Melting In The Fullness of Time is, surprisingly, one of their best ever. Available from their web-site.

One of my all time favorites. First heard in 1994 and couldn't believe O have never heard of them. In the same league with early U2.

I like very much this band since I discovered "Man of Straw" (a revelation!) in 1985.
Best tracks for my opinion: In flux, 50/50, Alice, Imagination, My heart's on fire, House of clouds, Vendetta, My hert's on fire.
Scusate il mio inglese maccheronico ma questa lingua l'ho imparata grazie alla colonizzazione culturale inglese impartitaci dal grande rock!

I'm a friend of Simon's, I'm sure all you fans know he's the lead singer.

I'm thinking of doing a remix of one of their tracks. Any ideas on how their style could be modified without losing the qualities you like.

I saw them on Venice at Jam Club. Simply great !!

>>By To Salva   (Monday, 31 Mar 2003 07:37)

I have enjoyed the great performance of Sad Lovers in Rome (Blackout, March 2003).
But they don't plough "Man of straw", the best song.

>>By Protesilaus   (Tuesday, 1 Apr 2003 20:19)

I was in Venice for their second live in Italy (Jam 29.03.03)
The best new wave band I have seen.
Hoping for the next live in Italy (next year ?)
Hello to Garçe, Nigel, Cliff, Tony and the big big young keyboards player.

I was in Rome for this concert and it was fantasic! My best part was the song Things We Never Did where we all sing the saxophone melody!!! I too missed Man Of Straw, but they payed In Flux, Alaska, Seven Kinds of Sinn (which they made unplugged!!!!!), Imagionation and many more favourites. Please bring them back soon Blackout Club!!!!

>>By Paolo de Toma   (Thursday, 3 Apr 2003 13:34)

Sad Lovers Live in Italy!!! Fantastic!!! War is over was a beautiful new song and they play all the big songs. I have all the LP's and was so happy to see them live after all my years.

>>By Mano   (Thursday, 3 Apr 2003 13:37)

I was so happy during Venice live for whole group.
I know that you enjoyed a lot, and the Italian lives have been a surprise for you.
Finally you came to Italy !!!
But we trust you’ll come again soon.

On 1998 a greek friend (Yannis) gave me a tape with two songs ("Alice" and "Clint") that I liked so much. I was at the show in Mestre on 29/3. Great, a very good concert. I lost my voice. Special thanks to Tony for the sign. If you give me your e-mail I can send you some photo.
The next time you come in Italy, please, play "Alice" too (it's my favourite song, it really opens the heart...). Grazie ancora! - Lorenzo

En verano vienen a ESPAÑA. Sin duda uno de sus países fetiche.
Estoy deseando la confirmación de las fechas y los lugares.
Todo un gran sueño convertido en realidad

One of the best bands I've ever heard. It has always amazed me that you hear so little about this band. Then again, many great bands of the early eighties went unheard of.

>>By Spike   (Monday, 26 May 2003 20:41)

...fearing they won´t play here...

>>By spain   (Monday, 7 Jul 2003 07:21)

I think it is fucking gross a fucking 7 foot tall giant with a fucking 5 foot tall person. And another thing is black and white people to have a mother fucking little mexican baby.My granpa calls it salt and pepper.

>>By Shorty   (Monday, 14 Jul 2003 23:41)

it is so romantic for 2 souls to come together and actually feal love and compashenent for eachother and have that special motherfucking bond. O.K. that was fucking sick short people should be with there own fucking kind and ditto with tall people! That fealt really good and gays R fucking sick but lesbians R O.K. in my book.!

To Ole who is thinking about doing a remix of one of SLAGS tracks, why not do Imagination in a Royksopp style with a hint of trance and string it out to about 12 minutes.

Must go, that naughty lodgekeeper needs his medicine.
