Falling Swinger (Stephen Cummings)1 - Unnamed

 

"After a series of solid solo albums following the break-up of the Sports in the early 80's, Stephen Cummings joined forces with the Church's Steve Kilbey in 1994 to produce arguably his best work to date. The two Steves, it turned out, had more in common than just a dry wit and a wicked turn of phrase: "September 13" - a Kilbey composition - is an oblique celebration of the pair's shared birthday. From the opening track, the churning "Big Room", Falling Swinger promised to sound nothing like any of Cummings' previous recordings. One moment it sounded like the biggest thing you'd ever heard, the next it could be as delicate as ice cream."
