Sananda Maitreya

Elsie Heffsey

I was explaining to my daughter about this fella the other day.
Stuart Maconie had played a track on Sunday by The Avalanches featuring Sananda and summed up exactly how I felt. I thought Introducing the hardline to Terence Trent D’Arby was superb. Here was a guy who who could belt one out like James Brown and do the melody stuff like Marvin Gaye ... he had it made.

Then I bought his second album - put it on the turntable and thought - wtf is this sxxxx!

You know what my daughter said? Why didn’t you stream a few tracks first before buying the album! Kids today.
