Anglo For Your Ear: The Yachts’ “Suffice To Say”

’70s power pop anyone? This Liverpudlian band never found mainstream success and has been largely forgotten in the 27 years since their split. Their career began with 1977′s minor hit, “Suffice to Say,” which, with its organs and Frank Zappa-esque harmonies, sounds like a long-lost cut from a Nuggets collection. The chorus is a kick in the pants: “Suffice to say you love me…can’t say that I blame you.”

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
