Happily when i gleefully plonked them in front of him he was more than happy to sign them both, I asked him why, 3 records in, 3 world tours in he had never come to Greece, he told me it was because nobody had ever asked him. "Really?" I replied, yep, all I want is someone to ask and a shit load of money and i will come over. "We don't have much money, you might have heard", said I. "Ha, only joking, i just want a nice hotel by the sea, get somebody to get me that and I'll be right over".
So there you have it, hopefully it wont be long before someone decides to ask the guy to come to Athens and play, in the meantime his new album is fantastic, more coherent and lyrically interesting than his previous 3 (including the long forgotten Healers album from the early noughties). Now will somebody please go and get him.
