For us Matt Johnson is one of the greatest British songwriters we don’t hear talked about enough. ‘The The’ are one of our favourite bands. Uncertain Smile is (possibly) one of our favourite songs by The The, in fact ever. A typical song that would fit perfectly at the end of a Disco Circus compilation.
Jools Holland playing Piano at the end of the track (for several minutes) is a moment to behold. Pure air piano. The whole thing though, the words, the melody. This is simply beautiful and a perfect song for a Sunday… or any day.
