A particularly fascinating edition of Kev Pearce's Your Heart Out e-zine, downloadable here - http://www.box.com/s/qq9kia82v8vyeuq9sz6c - concerns the life and work of Eddy Grant, one of those staple figures of a certain era of UK chartpop who, c.f. David Essex and Hot Chocolate, somehow manages to slip through the historical cracks (KP: "He is so famous that he’s almost invisible"). Often thought what an unusual, stompy, reggae-rock sound he had on those early hits like "Frontline" and "Do You Feel My Love" , what an odd one-off monster jam "Electric Avenue" is, but, as Kev shows, it goes a lot deeper and wider and weirder than that.
