Tintin

Momus, I have noticed over the years how quite a few people have compared you with Stephen Tintin Duffy. I wondered if this is something you are aware of/would like to comment on.

Particularly your image, less so the music, though you were both on Creation and have both written idiosyncratic songs for beautiful Japanese women singers. Stephen D. for Sandii of Sandii & the Sunsetz.

When you were both younger, you did look quite similar, with the same pout and hairdos. You were both born in the same year, and you cite the same childhood pop and literary influences.

Musically, you both are really good at writing a catchy tune in combination with intelligent lyrics. My own POV is that the difference is that Stephen Duffy's work is usually more overtly romantic and nostalgic wheras you seem to be obsessed with what's happening now, or is about to happen, and the future.

I did read once that you met him with Brix Smith in Camden, or is that a myth?

Anyway, I am genuinely interested to hear your views on this pop nexus!

Re: Tintin

I answered this yesterday, or whenever you last posted it.
