The Blue Nile: Hats

Johnny Black, Q, 1989

GLASGOW'S BLUE NILE did rather well with their debut album, A Walk Across The Rooftops. Following almost universal critical acclaim it sold a respectable 80,000 copies; but that was five years ago and, until now, only a pregnant silence followed. No, they didn't go back to their day jobs. They admit to some personal difficulties, but claim mostly to have been working on this follow-up for half a decade.
