Allo Darlin'

The 2010 eponymous album on the Fortuna Pop! label  by the London based twee pop band Allo Darlin' stuck out like a sore thumb compared to most of the dross on the shelves in Barnardos in Stranraer.
A diamond in the rough.
Featuring the dulcet tones of Elizabeth  Morris  they were a  band I know who were a firm favourite of Drew and not surprisingly Brian and a good few others I suspect.
I've a digital copy of their final single  Hymn on the 45 from 2006 but this is the first of their three albums that I have managed to acquire. I shall endeavour to track down the other two.
Obvious comparisons to the likes of Camera Obscura which let's face it is no bad thing.

I'm putting this one down as a find.

Allo Darlin' - Dreaming

Allo Darlin' - Heartbeat Chilli


  1. Slightly disappointed that this isn't a tribute to Tippa Irie

    1. I'm not, that Tippa Irie song is even worse than today's offerings

  2. I would put this down as a find too. Hope you luck out and get the other two albums as well. Sorely missed band.

  3. The Big Lebowski was on tv here this afternoon.

  4. I suspected you would here from Brian on this one, like him I miss Elizabeth Morris and the guys. You need the whole back catalogue in your life, not least Tallulah
