Gavin Friday

Gavin Friday was the lead singer and principal visionary of one of Ireland's most ambitious, challenging, and (often) difficult post-punk groups, the Virgin Prunes. After leaving the Prunes in 1986, he abandoned the music business to paint for a year and a half, returning to the fray after teaming up with pianist Maurice Roycroft (whom Friday renamed the Man Seezer). The duo's 1989 debut, Each Man Kills the Thing He Loves, found him making unexpected moves into a sort of modern-day cabaret style, albeit with all the Bowie-isms of his vocal delivery intact. 1992's Adam 'N' Eve was a much less interesting follow-up which found him addressing his dark visions with a far more standard-issue modern rock sound. Friday collaborated with Bono to write three tracks (two of which were Bono-Friday vocal duets) for the popular 1993 film In the Name of the Father, and returned to a more cabaret-ish mode on 1995's Shag Tobacco. In 1996, Friday and Seezer contributed the song "Angel" to the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack, among other film work; this direction culminated in 1997 with a full score for the film The Boxer, which was released early in 1998. ~ Richie Unterberger

I actually found out about Gavin Friday at Starbucks. He was playing I love it. I couldn't agree more though white stripes not similar.

Here's an example of what's frustrating about Pandora: I found an album I like, '' (Ahk-Toong Bay-Bi) Covered'', which contains covers of U2 songs by artists like Gavin Friday and others. I decide to add some of the songs to my station, but the search can't find some of those songs by those exact artists. I know they are there, because I listened to the samples. Come on, Pandora!

I love Gavin Friday. I think some better "Similar Artists" would be Pulp, T Rex, Marc Almond, and David Bowie. I don't really see how "The White Stripes" are similar, but, hey, maybe. Wish they had more of his songs to showcase on here.
