31 Days of Music – Day 30

Today’s penultimate pick is from The Boo Radleys. Wake up Boo! was a hit all over the world, and when I first heard it all those years ago, I thought the lead singer was a woman, quite wrong as it was Simon Rowbottom (Sice). The band split in 1999 and Simon decided to write a book set in Victorian Liverpool call “Thimblerigger”. The name Boo Radley was taken from Harper Lee’s novel To Kill A Mockingbird which is a favourite of mine, hence calling my dog Harper-Lee.
