August 1989: Shakespear’s Sister are breaking into the top 10 with their debut single “You’re History”. At the same time, a man better known for his production work has overcome his shy reluctance to pen and sing his own material, and his debut single is riding high in the top 20. Pure is a perfect melodic and lyrical distillation of the entire Lightning Seeds canon, all perfect rainbows, bubbles, and shiny dreams, over simple arpeggios.
