That sounds great, I was kinda expecting a more Americana sound but in some ways it reminds me of Vini Reilly which is a big compliment coming from me.

I like that old time rock 'n' roll, don't try to take me to a disco.

Thanks! It was just me kind of banging out a tune with the half hour I had without the kids. I decided to try my stereo mic on the guitar, which I don't always get to use. It only sounds so good but I see some potential.

Yes! I couldn't put my finger on it, but you're spot-on, D. I too, love Vini.

I don't even know who that is- I'll have to look that up.

Ah- Duritti Column. I actually don't know very much about them, I'll take a listen.

He’s the antirawk mirrorverse ‘insert random boomer guitar god here’of British post punk, give or take a burning strat, some tiger trousers, a racist rant, a dragon cape and matadors hat.

As frail as his gossamer arpeggios, he almost certainly never stuffed a shuttlecock down his belbottoms or had drug fuelled sex with a minor in a house once owned by a black magician.

Listen to LC, Without Mercy and The Return of the Durruti Column and I’d like to think you’ll become a fan and you’ll have so many other great records like the Guitar and other Machibrs and Vinci Reilly to move onto.

I'm listening to "Sketch For A Summer" right now. I'd forgotten how much I love this album. :-* :-* :-*

I think that The Durruti Column would be a fast favorite of most of the folks here at OSG.

I've a very clear memory of buying that record in the situationist sandpaper sleeve and being blown away with it (and cursing the packaging).

Old Man Shadowplay has in my whole life hated nearly every record I've played around him but he LOVES Love No More off Vini Reilly and even knows what it's called. A friend of mine was working in Football TV during 1990 and asked me to recommend something for when England went out, I suggested this and it was they cut a montage to it but replaced it at the last moment with some insignificant pish.

I felt incredible sadness when I learned he was ill and struggling financially a few years ago and put my hand in my pocket. It is something of a measure of the man that he stopped the collection the moment he covered his arrears and was mortified by the whole thing.
