Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

The Lotus Eater - No Sense of Sin - Album

The Lotus Eaters was the name of a 1980s New Wave Band from Liverpool, England, whose single 'The First Picture Of You', from their debut album, 'No Sense of Sin' (1984), became a hit in the UK.

'No Sense of Sin' is a gorgeously crafted collection of melancholic guitar pop. 'Love Still Flows' and 'The First Picture of You' caress the ears with haunting piano and twinkling guitars, both songs unreel with a cinematic feel, the music and lyrics drawing sentimental memories from the listener's imagination. On the powerful 'It Hurts,' Jeremy Kelly's guitar sounds like a heart shrieking in pain as Coyle wallows in his grief. The starry-eyed keyboards and sing-along chorus of 'German Girl' and spellbinding violin of 'Set Me Apart' deepen The Lotus Eaters' appeal, they further explore Coyle's hankering for affection while lifting the spirits with sharp hooks.

'No Sense of Sin' was reissued on CD by BMG Japan in 1998, and this version easily tops the original with ten bonus tracks, including the driving 'You Don't Need Someone New' and the delicate 'Two Virgins Tender'. Unfortunately, the superior extended 12" version of 'It Hurts' isn't included, but that's the album's only sin. The Lotus Eaters, together with the similarly unfashionable China Crisis, sound more relevant today than ever, purely for their songwriting craft. 'No Sense of Sin' eventually reached number 96 in the UK Album Charts.
