THE bad news is that Paul Buchanan isn't entirely sure that The Blue Nile still exists.
The good news is that Buchanan, the band's singer, brings out a solo album in April or May.
The glacial pace with which the Glaswegians have released their albums has often been remarked upon. Suffice to say that an 18-year-old who fell in love with their perfect 1983 debut, A Walk Across the Rooftops, could have graduated from university, got married, sired a couple of kids, survived a messy divorce and embarked on an on-the-rebound second marriage by the time of the fourth album, High, 21 years later. Buchanan has, however, hinted to fellow member Robert Bell about making another record.
