I was gonna throw in Chris DeBurgh‘s “Lady In Red” just to lower the hipster quotient of this week’s list, but I thought that would just be too cruel. Enjoy – the Camera Obscura track has always been a fave.
Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. 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.
