#6 – Justin Currie – The Great War


Justin Currie hit the top ten as lead singer of Del Amitri with 1995’s “Roll to Me.”  That 2 1/2 minute Beatles knock-off merely scratched the surface of his talent.  Currie is a prolific songwriter who has a gift for writing incredibly melodic songs that refuse to leave your head.  He’s just released his second solo set called The Great War (Rykodisc). Currie talks with Icon Fetch from his home in Scotland on the eve of a tour of the US.  He talks about his new CD, how he almost drowned shooting the underwater front cover, and also gives his feelings on the social networking craze.
