What could be more fitting after mentioning The Desert Wolves than a post about James Dean Driving Experience? Another year and still no sign of that retrospective. And I suddenly realise that there haven't been any JDDE songs on this blog, which means it doesn't qualify for Sad Pop Obscurist status. I clutch my temples in woe! Luckily, Richard comes to the rescue and courtesy of him I present you with "Lonely Hearts XI Versus the Rest of the World" a song only available on their self-released cassette that followed their flexi, thus JDDE-2. Having already ticked off Audrey Hepburn they quite naturally went for Bridgitte Bardot to adorn the cover. As twee.net will tell you, this tape was unleashed on an unknowing world in 1988 and also featured a demo version of "Drop Dead Darling" and the single version of "Dean's Eleventh Dream".
