If you think it all began and ended with You’re Gorgeous, a song which catapulted Stephen Jones into the mainstream 22 years ago (number 3 in the UK charts) , then you’d be mistaken. He’d already recorded a handful of records by that point, and since then, with the help of bandcamp he’s released nigh on a hundred more. Even a heart attack 6 months or so ago hasn’t stopped him, and he’s recently recorded two albums in LA and the video “Unloveable” (see it on youtube) with the help of a certain Johnny Depp.
Ahead of some highly anticipated gigs, following on from his performances at a very lovely old church in St Panras in December, we spoke to Stephen and he picked out some of his favourite and most influential tunes.
