VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Fairground Attraction – ‘Perfect’
April 9, 2018
Some bands get to say all they need to in a short space of time. Fitting into this compact and bijou category is none other than Fairground Attraction.
Seemingly bursting out of nowhere in April 1988, this debut single by the band hit pole position.
And with good reason, too. The combination of Eddi Reader’s gorgeous voice and Mark Nevin’s songwriting, all stewed in an impeccable gumbo of country, jazz and swing, conspired to create a record that lives up to its name.
Topped off with a video that’s as much fun to watch as it is to listen to, this is a song that’ll never get old.
