Gorgeous is their fourth studio album. The album has some new wave influences; sampling Joy Division's track "She's Lost Control" in "Contrique", Ian McCulloch as guest vocalist on "Moses" and "10 X 10" a gospel-house track built on the foundation of The Jam's "Start!". You will also find a reworking of UB40's "One in Ten".
Furthermore the album features guest vocalists Barrington Stuart, Rachel McFarlane and Caroline Seaman.
The title track "Charade" is a sad, lonely Parisian waltz. It was nominated that year for the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
The 'Super Sounds Of The Seventies' is a selection of seminal and sometimes wacky hits by artists such as Stealers Wheel, Harry Nilsson and Joe Tex. The movie also raised public interest in the Dutch band George Baker Selection, due to the use of his "Little Green Bag" in the film's opening titles.
Keep On Truckin'!
