New Mob cd out now
I was quietly celebrating my 49th (cough) birthday on Sunday when I got an e-mail from John Esplen of Overground Records asking for my address so he could send me a copy of their new Mob record : "May inspire revolutionary acts" : OVER115VP CD
It came this morning. It has 20 tracks, the first 9 taken from the 1981 Ching cassette, then a version of Crying Again from 1979, the original (pre- Penny Rimbaud remix) version of No Doves Fly Here, 4 tracks from the 1980 'A Tribute to Bert Weedon' cassette and the final three tracks recorded live at Meanwhile Gardens 1983. Plus a booklet of photos, Mob graphics and details of the original recordings ... and some text by myself.
Listening to it has sent a few shivers down my back bone. My memories of those early eighties days seem so distant, so far away, yet the music is so fresh, so immediate. Timeless even.
I could say more. But then I already have. So go and do yourself a favour, unplug your mp3 player and try another flavour... and let the tribe increase.
