"I don’t like it out there the people are hurtful"
Merseyside has given us the Beatles, Echo and the Bunnymen, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Half Man Half Biscuit, Kathryn Williams, Ladytron, Ooberman, Zombina and the Skeletones, The Boo Radleys, Cast..okay, we'll gloss over that last one, but what I'm saying is the city has given us a lot of quality music over the years. I have another name to add to that illustrious (veering towards cult) list. A little name. Well, in fact, it is Little Name. Little Name at one point was a band but on the current record (How To Swim And Live) is just Lee Barker. Little Name combines poppy tunes (often with trumpets) with sensitive, longing lyrics and isn't that just the kind of music I love? Apparently, Lee has suffered from debilitating panic attacks which is something I've had experience of several times (my own panic attacks, not his, obviously...). I don't know how much of a direct influence that has had on his music, but I appreciate the way he approaches subjects.
