The Lilac Time: American Eyes

As I wrote years ago when choosing a song by Clive Gregson and Christine Collister, I used to listen to John Shaw's radio programme on Sunday evenings.

I remember him interviewing Stephen Duffy about his new band The Lilac Time. In those days Duffy was known as a founder member of Duran Duran and had had hits as Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy, but The Lilac Time - its name taken from a Nick Drake song - was clearly an attempt at seriousness.

During the interview Shaw played a Lilac Time tracks called American Eyes and here it is.

These days Duffy is best known for his writing and production for Robbie Williams and people make documentaries about him.
