We've got time for yet another Don't Die On My Doorstep night before Christmas, wouldn't you say? For the last instalment of the year we've got a welcome visit from Jonathan who used to run You Can't Hide Your Love Forever together with Daniel here in Malmö, and has later enjoyed brief stints with Apple & Peers and L'oiseau et le chien. Should be fun. And you might regonise the faces above from the first Electric Prunes album cover.
There's so much I want to play, but there probably won't be room for much more before I leave for NZ. I've added some of the tracks I meant to play at the previous night to the sidebar player. Fittingly, they all follow a 'down under' theme. The Clean song is a previously unreleased treasure, now to be found on the accompanying cd for Yeti 6. I saw the "magazine" (at over 200 pages it's hardly a magazine) in Rough Trade and it looks great. Unfortunately I couldn't afford it. The cd that comes with it has some great covers of songs by The Clean and The Great Unwashed, which was a post-Clean group. "Can't Find Water" is one of their best ones, I think. It's on the Flying Nun released Collection.
