This is the first ever male music and style! I don’t think Lightspeed Champion is particularly well known anywhere, but I love him! He used to be in the Test Icicles, who were briefly famous nu-rave-punk Hoxton types (although I think the other two band members may have been Americans), with more style than substance. Then he went solo and does the loveliest lo-fi folky music, so in contrast to the way he looks. I wasn’t so keen on the nu-rave clothes of the TI period, but I love the mix of traditional plaid, tartan, tweed and deerstalkers with the massive hair and geek-chic glasses. He looks so different in a sea of skinny jeaned indie kids, without breaking completely with that style of dress.
Oh, and the formatting is all over the place in the preview and I can’t work out why. I’m hoping it’ll be fine once this post goes live (its a scheduled one), sorry if not!
