Blackpool Lights This Town's Disaster Although an effort has been made to say this is not a side or solo project it's worth knowing that Blackpool Lights feature Jim Suptic, The Get Up Kids' 'other' singer. He was responsible for gems like 'Ten Minutes' & 'Woodson'. This is his first new material since the GUKs break up made with some help from friends in US geek rockers Ulitmate Fakebook amongst others. Great stuff with the passion lacking in the later GUks albums. Blackpool Lights' MySpace Curb Appeal CD
