Not a band I ever listened to much - there were so many better bands coming out of Scotland at the time, and all I heard from them seemed to be about pomp and bombast, verging on lumpen cockrock. I'm open to be convinced otherwise, but this is a bit of a plod, that picks up a bit once JK shuts up, then drops to the floor again when he re-enters. Nope, no Damascene moments here for me.
Aslo unfamiliar, and not a genre/period I usually go for, but at least it's got a bit of life in it. Actually, now that I listen to all of it, it's a respectable piece of black American pop, definitely a winner as far as I am concerned. B
I'm not sure I get the point. Why is something from 1997 inherently a more adventurous pick than something from 1968?
Darkness Fish's point was that he thought it was a shame that everything in the cup was from before he was out of short trousers, or even born. I was correcting him pedantically on a matter of fact about timing - a hairline VAR offside if you like - but saying that that didn't invalidate his point, which as I understand it is that he on the whole prefers things made in his lifetime. It's his opinion.

I’ve never liked the Minds, but there are a couple of early tracks I love, this being one of them. It has this jejeune quality about it – Glaswegians singing about Chelsea when they’d probably never been further than Edinburgh, fun with the orchestra button on the keyboards, flying V’s – that I really like. Relative to their subsequent career it’s a false dawn. Worth getting up early for, though!
B is fine but kind of disappointing as a final pick.
