I'm not sure Mondeo Pop exists anymore. It's more about SUV-Core these days.

acrobat, Tuesday, 28 August 2007 12:51 (nine years ago) Permalink

Zing zang zong aside, is Mondeo Pop the British Yacht Rock? This spreads from a conversation myself and less-published music writer acrobat had over MSN as to why America seems to love a good old fashioned critical reappraisal of bands (Steely Dan, Toto, Hall and Oates, Doobie Brothers), but nobody's turning up in the UK to go "Actually, Deacon Blue had a couple of really good songs, y'know?"

Dom Passantino, Tuesday, 28 August 2007 12:53 (nine years ago) Permalink

I think Mondeo Pop is more of an aesthetic than ledge would have it. It's not always what Soto and co would call Sophisto-Pop but it is similar. I don't think Sade, who epitomizes Sophisto-pop is Mondeo Pop at all but The Beautiful South are the kings of Mondeo Pop and they are not Sophisto-pop. It is a style that takes inspiration from the hot indie sounds of a few years prior and makes it a bit classier.

James - Sit Down '98

acrobat, Tuesday, 28 August 2007 15:02 (nine years ago) Permalink

I think Heaton is quite an interesting character, and for a year or two in the mid-80s I was quite a fan of the Housemartins. I still quite like things like 'Flag Day' or 'Build' and I think he was a touching singer once upon a time. I suppose the bloozy Radio 2 sound of the BS is the sound of Heaton forgetting Marx and forgetting Jesus and forgetting Hope and discovering beer and boredom and bitterness. He seemed to despise everything about pop music and life, but somehow became incredibly successful from doing so. You would think this would make for an interesting tension in the music, but it doesn't seem to have done.

The Beautiful South vs Simply Red as a post-socialist, pre-Blairite battle for the suburban car stereo of Mondeo Man is a topic worthy of Robin Carmody, though.

"Not So Manic Now" isn't Mondeo Pop? That song got rinsed on local radio back in the day.

Dom Passantino, Wednesday, 29 August 2007 13:39 (nine years ago) Permalink

So not Mondeo Pop. There are many factors. Local radio play is but one. I do not know all the factors.

acrobat, Wednesday, 29 August 2007 13:46 (nine years ago) Permalink

The other factor is Soul. Mondeo Pop is not soul but must have a soul element, I think. Wet Wet Wet are overlooked but crucial. In fact Mondeo Pop is fundamentally anti-rockist, maybe not in a 1986 sense but certianly in a 1996 or 2006 sense.

Today I came home from the supermarket and snapped the
radio on, and heard the opening of 'Wishing I Was Lucky'.
And I liked it - it must be my favourite of their
numbers; it has poise and dash; despite all the
gymnasium of the soul business, when those travelling
strings start to accompany Pellow halfway through an
early verse, they bear grace.

Crowded House are more Volvo or Audi (A4 not TT) than Mondeo surely, just feel the restrained quality of them.

Billy Dods, Friday, 31 August 2007 13:32 (nine years ago) Permalink

Crowded House are a bit of a red herring because they're not British. Mondeo Pop is part of a clear era in British history where the concept of "the left" was being invented.

I should note that it's not that I think The Blue Nile are too good to be mondeo-pop, just that there's something specific about the vibe i don't think they share, if i'm understanding it correctly. It starts to become diffuse otherwise, another name for MOR british pop-rock.

In the same way that I wouldn't describe post-"Sledgehammer" Peter Gabriel as mondeo-pop even if there are certain points of overlap.

If you got that idea from what I said that's not what I meant really. Wx3 took their name from a Scrit song, thats all the connections I know. What I meant was more that Scritti were held back by "artistic integrity"...

Man, I heard Dreams by Gabrielle at the weekend. So, so pure Mondeo Pop in a way say M People aren't. It's got the prettiness and the sort of, this is no slight, smallness. "I'm not making plans for tomorrow, just stay for tonight" consumate Mondeo Pop moment.

Has anyone mentioned that "The summer in city where the air is still, baby being born to the overkill" bit in Somewhere In My Heart by Aztec Camera is GREAT and reminds me oddly of Hash Pipe by Weezer. also "a vision of love wearing boxing gloves".

I was watching "top 100 forgotten gems of the 80s" on the hits the other day. The top 11 I thought was somewhat instructive:

11. Climie Fisher, Love Changes Everything
10. Tpau, Heart and Soul
9. Aztec Camera, Good Morning Britain
8. Alison Moyet, All Cried Out
7. Aha, The Sun Always Shines on TV
6. Abba, One of Us
5. Kim Carnes, Bette Davis Eyes
4. Feargal Sharkey, A Good Heart
3. Philip Bailey and Phil Collins, Easy Lover
2. Laura Branigan, Self Control
1. The Bee Gees, You Win Again

Ok not all MP by any means but some good candidates - Climie FIsher certainly, Aztec C of course, Tpau and Moyet in with a chance. Breathe, Hands to Heaven was up in the 80s or 90s - I always thought they were boyband-esque but the video looked more earnest than that. Anyway I think the idea that these songs are forgotten is telling, and not entirely mistaken.

Familiarity is the key here. Most Mondeo-friendly acts don't have whole albums of familiar tracks, apart from Greatest Hits collections. Take the Lighthouse Family as an average representative. Nobody knows what the non-singles sound like on their records, not even the people who played on them. Mondeo Pop thrives on the singalong. Compilations, especially with the word "Drivetime" in the title, are king.

Noodle Vague, Sunday, 14 October 2007 12:16 (nine years ago) Permalink

"Hooray for middlebrow" says Simon Reynolds in "Bring the Noise". Is Mondeo Pop the logical conclusion of what he's desperately groping about for over the course of his writings, the spark he tries and fails to find in dancehall, rave, and grime?

Dom Passantino, Monday, 12 November 2007 10:49 (nine years ago) Permalink

His problems with homophobia in dancehall are similar to the problems Mondeo Pop fans have with the misogyny of the Beautiful South, but in the end we have to overlook these things to appreciate an overall beauty of product.
