Hunters and Collectors often pulled off the near impossible. After a disastrous European tour, they rallied, producing a perfect set of songs echoing earlier Euro art/funk fock influences, suffused with Mark Seymour’s raw lyrics. Only H&C got beer barns of blokes shouting ‘you don’t make me feel/like I’m a woman anymore!’ But it’s more complex: if the anthemic simplicity of Throw Your Arms Around Me and Everything’s On Fire was seductive, the balance of Seymour’s (crucial) narrative voice and the band’s cavernous bottom end nailed it.
