They Survived the St Andrews Bargain Bin Cull ... Just #1

Mrs CC returned from a trip to St Andrews with her mother armed with 10 CDs purchased for 50p a piece from a bargain bin in Oxfam.
They were chosen primarily because of the name or the cover.
Five were so godamm awful that they were rapidly dispatched from whence they came.
It has to be said that none of the other five are classics but after much consideration they were retained and added to the CC shelves.
The Rembrandts have previously featured which leaves four more to subject you to.
First up is Moonwink by The Spinto Band (chosen because of the cover I suspect).
From Wilmington, Delaware this is their seventh studio album released on Park the Van Records in 2008.

Other than that I know no more. The singer is either guitarist Nick Krill or bassist Thomas Hughes.
Whoever it is his voice is a somewhat curious combination of Alex Kapranos from Franz Ferdinand and Mika.

The Spinto Band - Vivian, Don't

The Spinto Band - Pumpkins & Paisley
