A Mountain to Climb
The Diggers were a Scottish powerpop band who released one album on the Creation label in 1997.
I must have quite liked them as I have the CD single Nobody's Fool which I think I got at the time and another CD single Peace of Mind which I subsequently picked up in a charity shop in February 2017.
One of my last charity shop purchases of 2019 was their sole album Mount Everest.
I now only need the CD single of O.K. Alright to own their entire catalogue.
rateyourmusic.com gives the album a score of 3.32 out of 5 from 34 ratings which is probably about right.
Perfectly pleasant and inoffensive jingly jangly guitar pop and well worth a pound or so of anybody's money.

Hardly a ringing endorsement! so now I will play the tracks..........
Not sure its worth €1.17 of my money, but track 2 is pleasant enoughReplyDelete
The two singles I 've got are probably the best tracks but I have featured them beforeDelete
I have them doin' a track on a split 7" with The Boo Radleys.ReplyDelete
