Del Amitri – Sense Sickness
1 Star 0

I finally won the “Sense Sickness” 7″ off eBay for a semi-reasonable amount. Funny thing is that I used to give my friend Victor a lot of shit for liking Del Amitri, but I have to admit this song is quite good! It’s like night and day compared to the band’s later material.

“Sense Sickness” was released in 1983 and was the first single from Glasgow’s NoStrings Records (who also released excellent singles by the Suede Crocodiles and The Incredible Blondes).

Here’s the video (quality isn’t so great, but it’s worth seeing just for the shirts):

  1. Ed! Are you serious?! Making fun of Del Amitri? Man, their 1st record is one of the finest pop records ever made! So aweseomely awesome. Have you given that one a chance?

  2. Yeah, I heard it a few times and wasn’t really impressed. But if it’s as good as this single, I’ll have to dig up a copy.

  3. I would second that recommendation for the first Del Amitri record. But I wouldn’ go any further than that album, they turned into an entirely different band after that first record.

  4. Woah, baby! I’d heard that Del Amitri’s early work was great and but couldn’t bring myself to believe but this single is a topper. Cheers for sharing, sir!
