The Blue Nile: Hats (Linn)
David Quantick, NME, 7 October 1989
WHAT A romantic tale is The Blue Niles. I mean, youre probably sick to the privy parts of hearing how they made an LP for sixpence and everybody went barmy over It so they didnt make another one for five years and kept burning their own master tapes, but It is quite romantic, even if the main reason The Blue Nile failed to rock out for half a decade is simply that no-one at Virgin knew who was supposed to be looking after them and so couldnt tell them to get their fingers out.
