really can't get over how great the friends again stuff is . basically a series of flawless pop songs, not really a dud anywhere in the lot. at times it is channeling david bowie singing for orange juice, other times gerry rafferty doing lost circa steve mcqueen era-prefab sprout songs.

9 years later (wow). FYI, _Lagoon Blues_, their 3rd album, is being remastered/reissued per a Sept 2nd Bathers post on FB. Digital first, then album and cd.
Also, pre-Bathers (and pre-Love & Money) band Friends Again's _Trapped and Unwrapped_ is getting the two cd treatment from Cherry Red, out Nov 29th.

Carrying the torch a little further, Firestation Records is putting out an early / unreleased Friends Again album, In the Beginning on Nov 29th.
Also, all three Marina releases (Lagoon Blues, Sunpowder, Kelvingrove Baby) will be reissued. The Marina design aesthetic was a favorite back in the day. The KB cover in particular suggests an urbane class and mood.
