Heyday Revisited: The Godfathers

If you’re full of rage, you might as well don a shiny suit and skinny tie. I guess. Whatever, these angry Londoners put out four hard-hitting albums, with their second, Birth, School, Work Death, a certifiable alternative classic. It has song after excellent song - the title song, "If I Only Had Time," "Tell Me Why," "When Am I Coming Down," "Cause I Said So" - and is one of those rare albums I enjoy listening to from first song to last. My favorite has always been one of the perhaps lesser known tunes on BSWD, “Love is Dead.” For those who like their pop with an ooch of snarl. Check out the full catalog here and Birth, School, Work, Death here. Also, read more at All Music.

I've always loved the way that song starts. "She phoned in sick today. She needs a mental holiday." I think of it everytime I do the same.

Well observed, sir. The only bad thing about this song is that it eventually ends. Fortunately, there are others. Thanks for your comment.
