A Brief History of Pink

Speaking of nice album covers, album of the week at Black HQ is A Brief History Of Love by The Big Pink (above). One of the first 'rock'albums of recent times reflecting the x-factor Brit-gat-vocal of The Verve or Jesus And Mary Chain - at their best - wrapped in quality contemporary production. The album's highlights include song du jour Dominoes, the building Velvet, the Mary Chain-esque title track and the verging-on-epic Too Young To Love. Pink is good. Very good.
