Honey Smugglers emerged on the London scene in late 1988.
Their pop sensibilities won them many admirers on the London gig scene,
and they were courted by most of the major labels. In reality, however,
they were perhaps too eccentric for mainstream consumption.

Eventually signed by Fiction in the summer of 1990 and immediately recorded
the classic `Listen’ E.P. The title track was totally in sync with the `baggy’ times
(although more by accident than design, the track had been written nearly two years before).

They were one of those bands in the scene that i often ignored or forgot all about them. There were bigger bands in the era that outshine them, but when i listen to this track, i hope they could have been championed more.
