Waikiki

Waikiki, not only an island, also a band. Tell me you love them.

Including such gems as Ms Universe, Here Comes September, and New Technology. And no, I'm not taking the piss, although I wouldn't normally listen to this kind of breezy pop music. Juanita Stein's voice is delightful.

At the very least, I expect to hear from you, Betty.

Also, Alex Lloyd's new song is tops. Gosh, I am turning soft in my old age. Next thing you know, I'll be grooving to the Beach Boys.

I could love them. If they're anything like Alex Lloyd in terms of style, I think I'd safely bet no though.
They're not new are they.

Well Angie, to answer your unspoken question, no, they do not sound like Alex Lloyd, and yes, they are new. Fairly new, I suppose. They have one album.

I really liked "Here Comes September" and "New Technology". I'd get their album if there wasn't a massive line of other artists' albums queuing in front,

Alex Lloyd is a pass though; that sensitive moaning of his doesn't do much for me.

Yes! They are Aussie!

I don't know why people dislike Alex Lloyd so; with the exception of that awful song 'Amazing', his work is really really tight. Excellent tunes and arrangements, and as for sensitive moaning, I dunno about that. He has his own style. I'm not generally a fan of sensitive moaning.

I don't dislike Alex Lloyd, I just think that his music is pretty generic and dullish. And he did an absolutely hideous cover of "Mysterious Ways".
