Going to see them in Sheffield next Thursday with Sarah. I AM X if you don’t know is the brain child of Chris Corner from The Sneaker Pimps. His first album “Kiss and Swallow” was the catalyst for starting Northern Kind and was responsible for even naming NK albeit from a mis-heard song lyric.

“Simple Girl” from “Kiss & Swallow” is one of my favorite songs with a really lovely arpeggiated intro line, I played it to death on a trip to Florence a few years back and now it imprints such a vivid image of that time whenever I hear it.

If you get a chance buy Kiss and Swallow and The Alternative, both very good albums.
