Flop single #7 in a series of 11 released between 1998 and 2003.
I really dont know which of the many thousands of line that David Gedge has written in hius quite amazing career is my particular favourite. A lot depends on the sort of mood I'm in when listening to his singing and playing. But this, I'll argue, is a touch of genius:-
I know what this is all about
The wine goes in and the truth comes out
It's yet another song of a love gone badly wrong. This time the bloke in question can't quite work out how anyone can possibly make his other half happy. Not even the comic book hero.....
mp3 : Cinerama - Superman
Anyone familair with the work of The Wedding Present and/or Cinerama will know all too well how fond they have been of turning their hand to cover versions over the years. Well, one of the two songs made available on the CD single had a stab at a piece of supreme cheese-balladry from the 70s while the other is a track that deserved far more than a mere b-side:-
mp3 : Cinerama - Yesterday Once More
mp3 : Cinerama - Starry Eyed
Incidentally, having previously released songs sung in French, David decided to have a go in Spanish with a 7" single on green vinyl:-
mp3 : Cinerama - Superman (Spanish Version)
And as if that wasn't enough, there was a new recording of the hugely popular LP track Hard, Fast & Beautiful with a live English intro that soon transforms itself into something quite different:-
mp3 : Cinerama - Dura, Rapida Y Hermosa
