It takes gifted songwriters to pick up on what makes other compositions work and Golddiggas Headnodders and Pholk Songs is full of the hooks and melodies that made the originals so popular without the stigma that normally accompanies them. Hull never sounded so good. The Beautiful South’s Golddiggas Headnodders and Pholk Songs is released by Sony on 25 October Post this article to.
