Loving 'Tonight The Streets Are Ours' - Hawley's latest single. Very 'retro' I guess, but a great tune.

It's amazing. It could be a Belle and Sebastian song, and yet that voice is unmistakeable. Castanets and angelic choirs, how does he get away with it?

Still waiting for him to do another gig in London when I'm not on holiday. :evil:

Saw him live for the first time (if you exclude a Longpigs gig and a Pulp gig 'back in the day') last night at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.

Completely 'blown-away' - I think he has now joined the ranks of my very favourite artists.

I've changed the title of this thread so it can be a general Hawley thread rather than restricted to 'Tonight The Streets Are Ours'.

Did Richard Hawley ever support Keane? :? I have a feeling I might have seen him at somewhere like the Appollo in Manchester, or even the RAH a few years ago. :)

He's amazing, isn't he? We love him in our house, we try to go and see him whenever he plays in London! His new album is quite different from his 50s-inspired earlier stuff ...

Diana - I suspect you are thinking of Stephen Fretwell. :D I'm pretty sure Mr H has never been on a bill with Keane.

So many great songs. He's a major (almost 'God-like') talent. I accept I was 'late to the party', but...
