No sleep 'till Ardrossan
Who was it that said those apathetic shoegazy dream popsters never had a sense of humour because they were too damn busy sweeping their tangly hair out of their faces, staring at their worshipped feet and messing about with at least fifteen effects pedals all at the same time? You know, I think I love this song, and worship this version of this song, in just about equal measure. But, really, it's an essential listen (to be played on repeat at least a baker's dozen times, or so) as sometimes you just need to let it fucking rip. Play loud, pop kids! LOUD.
Drop Nineteens - '(You gotta) fight for your right (to party!)' (Beastie Boys Cover, Peel Session, recorded 15-11-92) (4.15)
Yes, I really do miss shoegaze, in that early 90s way. But for that 'lost' Drop Nineteens album, 'Mayfield', you can just click here (Rapidshare). It's essentially a bunch of unreleased demos that were all recorded pre-'Delaware' (Caroline Distribution, 1992). I tell you, these tracks fair bring a Boss DD-5 Digital Delay lump to your acoustic throat.
