v.a. - siete 7" 2006

while we're on the topic, and since the 'two for the price of one' compilation predominantly stepped up to the top of our very own "mustard" chart in only about three days i see the love for obscure indie is very prominent. with that being said, here's another seven inch compilation called siete from spain's indie label tragadiscos, this time contributions from sambassadeur singing "claudine" originally by the bats, math & physics club performing "angel gone" by beat happening, acid house kings doing loveninjas and vice versa. i must say.... the acid house kings did a really good job on "keep your love" and so does the loveninjas cover of "say yes if you love me", both sounds livelier than the orginal... hmmm... just sayin'.

acid house kings - keep your love...

v.a. - two for the price of one 7" 1993

really the only release i know from winter's mist label, this various seven (also released on swing set records) consists of experimental/indie/space rock tracks from madison electric, esme's symphony and the girl who stole the eiffel tower. pretty much underground independent bands that we've never heard of before. can't find any four-one-ones on the web at all, in fact when you search for madison electric.. you will get results like electric suppliers or something, or a blog name the girl who stole... blah blah blah!!

madison electric - shadow of your smile...

the girl who stole the eiffel tower - untitled...

thousand yard stare - buttermouth cd5 1992

uk's thousand yard stare was an indie band hailing from slough in berkshire. active from the start of the nineties made a couple of full length albums and several no non-sense eps on their very own aardvark label, this is not your average mediocre band.. tys toured with the jennifers who soon became supergrass and supported tim booth's james and south london's carter usm before the britpop and baggy scene exploded. with both albums being produced by stephen street, you can almost assure that tys has great potentials. the "brightest hope for the future" as mentioned by nme zine had its final album released in 1993 challenged by what seemed to be the face of then blossoming "bab" scene with acts like pulp, blur, the charlatans, sleeper and suede just to name a few.
"buttermouth" from their debut album 'hands on'  ..a us only single that includes a remix version of buttermouth made exclusively by polygram for this five-track ep single or so it seems, hmmmm..(it could very well be the usa version of keepsake). either way, play it loud and enjoy!! uder randy??!!
