Still, if Ms. Kennedy herself isn’t bothered then let’s not worry ourselves. ‘Fuckability’ is a hell of a record, full of hazy effects and deep and dirty sounds. Buried somewhere amongst it all is still one of the finest voices this country has ever produced and one that is obviously not averse to taking more chances than most of her contemporaries. Best thing she’s ever done by a mile.
