"The streets are dark and empty. And Soho's closed its doors. The late night bus has been and gone. And I've drunk till I can't drink no more ..." Sunday morning coming down. That sort of feeling. Neatly captured in Six O'Clock by The Tyrrel Corporation. Early '90s duo of John Watson and Tony Barry. Conscious House. Uplifting sounds and a bit of socio-realism in the words. The Style Council meets Ten City. Cruelly neglected. Their two LPs well worth investigating. Six O'Clock is one of their finest moments though. The song ends: "There's huddled shapes along the river as the sun begins to rise. Maybe things ain't all that bad when you look thru someone else's eyes ..." Amen.
