Blisteringly hot days here in Scotland.
Well, by the standards that we’re used to, aircon is something that most people are workplaces don’t have because there’s no need for it …most of the time.
Light summer nights, holidays around the corner and the possibility that a Scot might, just might, win Wimbledon.
However, we’re passed the summer solstice, and as folks are prone to annoumcing (round about June 24) ‘The nights are fair drawing in…’
There’s only one track that I could possibly post:
Field Mice -‘September’s Not So Far Away.’ mp3
Mind you, after a few weeks of the festvals in August (yes, that is festivals plural) this might seem appropriate too, if a little cynical:
Bright Eyes -‘Tourist Trap.’ mp3
Just a quick post today, before watching Doctor Who on Catch-up TV. Mrs. 17 Seconds is watching Britain’s next Top Model and I am taking the opportunity to root around for stuff I still need to complete those Peel playlists. So with my emusic subscription renewed, why not share a few of the slightly more obscure tracks I’ve located?
Bongwater -‘Nick Cave Dolls.’ mp3 (1991 Festive Fifty no.50)
Buffalo Tom -‘Tail Lights Fade.’ mp3 (1992 Festive Fifty no.45)
Field Mice -‘Missing the Moon.’ mp3 (1991 Festive Fifty no.45)
Mercury Rev -‘Car Wash Hair.’ mp3 (1991 Festive Fifty no.49)
Therapy? -‘Teethgrinder.’ mp3 (1992 Festive Fifty no.33 )
Tuscadero -‘Angel In A Half Shirt.’ mp3 (1994 Festive Fifty no.49)
And as always, as I promised him I wouldn’t put him out of business, check out Teenage Kicks for Steve’s excellent insight into it all!
See you soon, Ed
It’s always nice to get feedback on this blog, and it’s also always nice when you get a lot of feedback, particularly about something you might not expect to.
So, cheers for all those who wrote in about the Trembling Blue Stars post. And here, a humble offering. I only own two tracks from Matthew Wratten’s previous band, the Field Mice, but I thought I would share these with you, as well as a Saint Etienne cover.
The Field Mice -‘Landmark.’ mp3
The Field Mice-‘Let’s Kiss And Make Up.’ mp3
Saint Etienne-‘Let’s Kiss And make Up.’ mp3
