Maybe, it can't hurt, and it is a sunny day, try again?

Momus, I read with interest the comments you made about so-called "literary" UK songwriter peers. Some glaring omissions which would be nice to hear your views on:

Mark E. Smith
Terry Hall
Jarvis Cocker
David Gedge
Julian Cope
Lawrence

I was wondering what you make of the works by these less "indie" male songwriter artists:

Ali Campbell
Roland Orzabal
Nik Kershaw
Nick Heyward
Colin Vearncombe

ill speak on behalf of momus using the old art of second guessing. adopting well spoken clear diction .
mark e smith..mmm lets see a bit working class,common and wears terrible clothes.(once married to that desperate fashion fool brix)
terry hall .........mmmm see above only slightly better clothes.also desperately trading on past glory's.
jarvis cocker....see my film "man of letters"..enough said
david gedge....meat and potatoes...the reliable if somewhat aesthetically drab indie perennial.
julian cope....means well but oh you know......likes stones and things
larwence....oh yes the felt man..vaguely know him a bit neurotic has a certain charrm but lacks my forward thinking,inovation and melodic sense,a decent fellow though.
i think ill leave the rest have conceptual tableauxs to critique.....mmmm excuse me
