Nick Lowe has mellowed over the years, but I guess that’s not a bad thing – I suppose I have too. And let’s face it, he might’ve had more edge to him when I first saw him in 1977, but even songs like (I Love the Sound of) Breaking Glass were more impish than threatening. He just never seemed as angry as Elvis Costello, Graham Parker or other contemporaries. So, I’ll take the current gentle version of (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding without complaint.
