The Lucksmiths is from a double single pack, a Sarah Records "tribute" ep on Matinee and it's a Boyracer song. The Flying Circus song is an ancient bubblegummy thing, and they're Aussies as well. It's in fact my older brother's record. He used to have all these boxes of singles in his bedroom in the lates 60's/early-mid 70's and as a young boy it was a fascinating world to me..."La La" being one of the ones I used to insist he play all the time. And on a deeper level, most probably his boxes of singles are why this particular blog exists !!
