It's one for the money...

The singer Momus, aka Nick Currie, is too clever for his own good. At least, so music-biz wisdom always had it: too literate to be championed by the NME, too adept an ironist to be taken as a sincere balladeer, too sincere a moralist to be accepted as an ironic dandy. Where, then, can a misunderstood British pop intellectual take refuge?
