Jules and the Polar Bears - Phonetics/Fenetiks - 1979


The second Polar Bears album follows much of the same formula as Got No Breeding, with less memorable results. The band still rocks in places but the overall production is slicker and a little more synthesizer heavy. Shear's songwriting is top-notch ranging from the pure pop of "Good Reason" to the beautiful ballad "Real Enough to Love." His delivery seems more restrained this time around. -AMG

If you like "Fanatkis" get it here!

I saw Jules on tour around the time of "No Breeding" They were opening for Rockpile. It was a good show. I kind of wish Jules had stayed in a band.

Thanks much for "Fenetiks" - have you got "Got No Breeding"? It would be cool if someone would reissue Jules' two EMI albums (even though I'm lucky enough to have gotten the Japanese CD of "Watch Dog"). Enjoy your break, Curty.
