Along with the 20 minute b-side Heaven Taste, Sweetheart Raw (1992) is the studio embodiment of no-man’s brief collaboration with the great Steve Jansen, Richard Barbieri and Mick Karn. This started life as an acoustic song of mine (of which the chorus remains intact) that Steven developed further. The Karn groove is exceptional and I love the characteristically inventive Barbieri sounds. Ben Coleman is on top form as well. Steven’s wonderfully wild coda has definite shades of Porcupine Tree music to come, I think.
