#56, a variation in the formula

It's pretty much the same "random selection" concept but this time I stuck my hand in the 12" shelves and pulled out a chunk to see what happened & when the Rabbits Wedding Mini LP was first in the list ( after my last post pointing to the Rabbits Wedding single on ebay ) I knew it was my destiny to play the first 10 songs from this handful....so here we are. But pretty much a one off for the 12's otherwise if I start on them we could be here for a loooooooong time !! They were mostly singles but in the case of an album I had to forget the random factor and choose one track.

Starting with the song "Rideout" by Rabbits Wedding from the 'In Truth About Road' Mini Lp. as I said I got to choose this one ( for a change ), to start with how could I possibly go past a song featuring Juliet Ward ( Lighthouse Keepers/Widdershins ) on backing vocals ? Rideout is also one of those songs in my life I have never been able to listen to just the once when it goes on, usually requiring at least 2 or 3 plays per sitting ( yep - "rewind Selectaaaa" ). Another song which has this honour in my house is "About The Weather" by Magazine.

The Jesse Garon & The Desperadoes track is from the 12 of "You'll Never Be That Young Again". The Beloved song was a single ( which sadly I don't have and ergo it wouldn't normally potentially pop up on a post here by normal means ) and in this instance is on a 1986 comp called "A Different Kind Of Tension" ( featuring other luminaries 'of the day' as The Wolfhounds, The Wedding Present, Soup Dragons, 1000 Violins, Might Lemon Drops, Soup Dragons, Stump, June Brides and The Shamen ). The Decline of The Reptiles track comes from their "The Hammer Speaks" Mini Lp.

Troy Tate is from a 10 inch 3-tracker ( with the appropriate amount of distance between him and Moz's boys at the end ). Johanna Pigott's song comes from the "The Nine O'Clock Muse' comp, which featured recordings made for an All Aussie Adventure "live" series on 2JJJ.

And finally of note dear old Moz - what is in fact the B-side...not bad chops to have "How Soon is Now' as a mere flipside, huh ??
