I'm sure lots of people spotted this when they first heard it. I did :D
'The Blues Are Still Blue', a track (and new single) from the latest album, 'The Life Pursuit' contains the line, 'he's a part time punk'. Nice!

I always thought B&S have - er - borrowed a lot more from the TVPs then either they or the 'ooh they're so original' posse of journalists that championed them ever admitted - not just musically but everything from the clothes to the over-long song titles to the album artwork. They always struck me as what the TVPs would have sounded like had they been signed to Sarah Records. [edited to add] And I mean that as a compliment, Sarah had a far higher good/bad band ratio than any of the trendier labels in the early 90s (look at some of the crap Creation or K used to release).

I love that track, to me it has a little bit of a T-Rex feel to it. (do u think so?)

The first time i heard it i was like "did he just say PART TIME PUNK"?
i had to start it over and listen again. it quickly became my favorite song on the album!!!
