Roddy Frame changes Aztec Camera's focus
to graceful pop soul


Len Righi

Extract:

To his detractors, singer-songwriter Roddy Frame is to pop music what George Bush is to politics — the quintessential wimp — and Aztec Camera's airy, pristine, soft-focus post-punk pop is just too precious for words. However, Frame has his share of staunch defenders, including a pretty fair songwriter named Elvis Costello, who used Aztec Camera to open his 1983 Punch The Clock tour in Allentown. (The Costello crowd at the Fairgrounds that night was restive, although Roddy, acoustic guitar in hand, sang valiantly in the face of indifference.) Frame partisans point to his mellifluous melodies and clever lyrics and lauded for his poetic sensibility and originality.
