Big Gold Dream - 3
An embarassment of riches to choose from this week on Disc 3 from 1982 to 1985
It would have been easy to feature the Bluebells (but Cath has appeared here before),or the Waterboys,Aztec Camera, Cocteau Twins or the Jesus and Mary Chain but I thought I would go for some of the lesser known artists.
You could argue that Strawberry Switchblade are reasonably well known but they only ever had one album and one huge hit with Since Yesterday.
Here is the first single from Rose McDowell and Jill Bryson recorded on the 92 Happy Customers label run by Will Sergeant of Echo and the Bunnymen fame.
The Suede Crocodiles were a band fronted by Kevin McDermott who featured here pretty recently
Stop the Rain was a 1983 single on the NoStrings label.They were originally called Popgun not to be confused with Brighton band The Popguns a firm favourite of our dear friend Brian
After two Weegie acts we leave the City of Culture and head north to the City of the Furry Boots. Fit like Lynchie?
Aberdeen band The Jasmine Minks,fronted by Jim Shepherd and Adam Sanderson, were signed to Alan McGee's Creation label releasing their debut single Think! in 1984.
Another plethora of pop perfection to choose from next week when we dip into Disc 4.
Strawberry Switchblade - Trees and Flowers
The Suede Crocodiles - Stop the Rain
The Jasmine Minks - Think!
