Tindersticks: ICA, London

Nick Hasted, Independent, The, 12 November 1996

THE TINDERSTICKS' image is set in stone. Their debut double-album three years ago was full of songs of desperate love, back-alley violence and occasional masturbation. A second album last year did little to lift the gloom. Their current release, a soundtrack to a French film about teenage pregnancy, hasn't exactly helped.
