Your perception of Nick Lowe depends, I think, on where you came in.
For many, he’s the man behind the hits from the 70s So It Goes, I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass, or Cruel to be Kind.
For others, he’s the songwriter behind Elvis Costello’s (What So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding, or Dave Edmunds’ I Knew The Bride (When She Used to Rock’n’Roll) or even Johnny Cash’s The Beast in Me.
This cropped up in The Chain many moons ago,but it’s worth revisiting. For this is Lowe in elder statesman territory, smashing a self-penned Country tune right out of the park:
That record came out in 1998, so we can ignore the fact that Lowe looks a lot like Trump in that cover art.
