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.
