old enough to drink...podcast #18

well at least in Australia 18 is the legal age for drinking...a bit older in other countries I believe !! What are you waiting for ?

Something about the Wedding Present song made me laugh today as it's such a rough old demo quality or in in modern speak like a 96kps song on myspace. The Jesus & Mary Chain IS a demo apparentely ( and from the bside of Darklands ), but it's meant to be that way, unlike Gedgey's work. Today we also hear from Dance Set which was an offshoot group of Rob Griffith's of The Little Murders from Melbourne who showed up on podcast #5 with "She Lets Me Know". As far as I remember this was the one and only Dance Set release. The Wishing Stones song is the b-side to"The Old Road Out Of Town", I found the a-side a bit boring if the truth be known. The Widdershins were a band formed by ex members of The Lighthouse Keepers who have shown up on both this and my other blog Humans Beware. The Scritti single is just when they started to go a bit schmicko. I have the early Scritti punkoid singles ( and the later ones !! when he/they went totally schmicko ) so I suspect they'll appear here eventually.
