The enormity of small things ...

The sixth issue of Your Heart Out is a special edition called The Enormity of Small Things ... with The Flirtations on the cover dancing in the ruins of an abbey, while inside taking as a starting point Dexys' Coming To Town shows in 1985, adding a soundtrack of lopsided soul and odd pop, there are lots of thoughts about how things fit together, and the consequences of intuition and influence.

The cover is a screenshot from a wonderful promo posted on YouTube of The Flirtations performing their heartstoppingly wonderful Nothing But A Heartache, a British twist on the soul format, which is a very strong theme in this edition. Talking of themes, there seem to be a number of clips on YouTube of the Flirtations dancing their way round historic buildings. Who said you can't dance to architecture?
