TODAY’S MUSE: Fairground Attraction

DAILY MUSE | As I listen to music like Madeleine Peyroux and Norah Jones, who have garnered popularity nowadays, I recall one of my favorite groups from the late 80s– Fairground Attraction. They had one phenomenal album called “The First of A Millions Kisses”, which did well in alternative programming radio stations at the time, but did not fair that well in general POPularity. I listen to them now ( in relation to Peyroux and Jones) and think how much they were ahead of their time. How their music is still fresh and new. How every song on that album had a great hit-like hook… kinda like how the Cranberry’s first album was as well. FAs sound and sensibility seems to be a strong precursory influence of the current popularity of Peyroux and Jones and the like– which is a very good thing. Check out a few links below and listen to the sounds of Fairground Attraction.

    I have never heard of them before…but they are really good…thought the sound in the first track had an undercurrent of the music down here in New Orleans in it…the 2nd video confirmed…thanks!

  2. Oh! Foxhollow, you live in New Orleans! I have great friends who live there. They are graphic designers– Zande Newman Design… in the Garden District. It is a small town there… perhaps you know of them?
