Their debut album 'Comforts of Madness' was certainly full of pretty music but there was an oddness about it which made it a lot more interesting than the 'High, Sky, Pie' that constituted the lyrical genius of Ride (strange that Oasis follow a similar dogma. 'Timethief' is a good example of their sound at this time.

'Kinky Love' is a cover of a Nancy Sinatra song, it's not really typical of their output but it sounds lovely. I like the idea of a slightly bookish and nerdy British indie band singing such self conciously 'sexy' lyrics. It is also beautifully recorded.

The Pale Saints split many years ago but 'Comforts of Madness' is still avalable.
