Shane’s Music Challenge: FUN LOVIN’ CRIMINALS – 1999 – Mimosa
6/10

Fun Lovin Criminals - Mimosa cover

Mimosa is a collection of schmoove lounge versions, for the most part, of songs from FLC’s first three records, plus a couple of obscure bits and pieces thrown in for good measure.

As such, it’s a bunch of fun and lets singer Huey indulge his Dean Martin boozy crooner persona to the hilt. There’s lots of fun to be had for fans (which I am) but it would take a pretty ardent one to refuse to admit that the shine was coming off the wheels for the band by this point.

Still, the likes of I Can’t Get With That, Bombin’ The L, Scooby Snacks and especially The Summer Wind with Ian McCulloch & We Have All The Time In The World work a treat in these re-jigged, sparser arrangements.
