She Falls From the Sky

It's not without reason I let Slipslide's "Summer Song" conclude my 'pop' summer mix. I keep coming back to Graeme's songs. Maybe it's nostalgia for a memory I don't have. Guitar sounds from childhood. The way he sings "yesterday I felt alright, but just now I am so happy I might hurt myself" in their Melodie Group cover on Matinée 50. And all those other lines that crop up in my head intermittently. So I used the player here to make a playlist of some of the songs I've been listening to recently - by Slipslide, Love Parade and Pure. Hope you catch them before they're gone.

Love Parade were my favourite of the Graeme Elston bands. But as far as Pure go, I'm still looking for the Aspidistra 7": Frosty 01 = my holy grail!
