The Blue Nile: Acquamarines

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, May 1984

NILS LOFGREN, John Cage, Tim Buckley, Peter Skellern. Peter Skellern?! Is this a leg-pull or what? Nobody could sound like John Cale and Peter Skellern, could they? Incredibly, though, all of those Comparisons (and More) have been flung in the direction of The Blue Nile. Where? No, hang on. Just what the world needs, another pop group.
