Wild Card

Terence Trent D’Arby
Wild Card
The man who would have been the grittier Prince or the nastier Lenny Kravitz re-emerges after a move to Italy. There’s less sneer and more bliss in the voice, but this is not as disastrous for his music as one might think. He can still shift from growl to falsetto with amazing ease and sophisto-funky bass-lines throb throughout. If a few songs sink in lyrical New Age goo, it’s not enough to blunt his touch with spooky chorale, murky layers or old world charm. He’s mellowed, but not terminally.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
