'Brilliant Mind' - Furniture

Continuing with my 80's kick, I woke up with the excellent 'Brilliant Mind' by Furniture in my head this morning. Their one hit single, it only surprisingly made it to number 21 back in 1986. After the band disbanded, lead singer Jim Irvin went on to become a music journo working at Melody Maker and then Mojo. He also produced the first demos by the band Gay Dad, their single, "Oh Jim" was apparently dedicated to him.

Thanks to my brilliant brother for his encyclopedic knowledge of 80's music, he was able to tell me straight away without any help from the Internet Brilliant Mind's highest chart position. If you ever need to know anything about 80's music he's your guy, more reliable than the entire Internets!
