Badly Drawn Boy

Biography

"The whole album is a reflection of real life versus the incongruous stupidity of the life I now lead as a minor celebrity," he says. "So the statement that meant the most to me was 'Have You Fed The Fish?' The fish angle is symbolic of the fact that it's the tiniest things that need the most looking after, as opposed to the jet set lifestyle that's occurred because of my songs.I rub shoulders with people that I've long admired. And that's the thing I'm trying to understand a bit more about and whether it means anything to me."
