blue clocks green - save yourself then the world single-sided 12" 1990

blue clocks green were a new york based synth-die duo, comprised of college mates lange mozian and michele dougherty. this was their last record during their short span fame in college radios late in the eighties. tho it was released in 1990 unlike "hemingway", this track has that jangly, dreamy c86ish feel to it. give it time and it will grow in you.

save yourself then the world...

bobby scarlet - white pearl 12" 1988

with only two singles released in the eighties, bobby scarlet, a guitar-pop quintet from west sussex, england called it quits late in the eighties. they released their first single "mosquito" in 1986 and again in this single in 1988 and that's the last we heard of them as bobby scarlet. then out come the nineties baggy scene, most of the band members(brothers jeff and nick pitcher, m. wise, s. walker)  with the exception of the drummer went on to form "spitfire" a psychedelic/garage rock outfit active in the early nineties to mid with two full length albums in their resume.
