DROP 23

One of the main reasons I bought Accident's reissue of the Hoopla tape was to get my hands on that Reserve track. It's a fantastic, languid number and the best song on the LP together with The Siddeleys and North of Cornwallis tracks. Al who had the Sombrero label (Reserve, Siddeleys, Bob) has started a blog (see Dustysevens in the link box) which you should keep an eye on if you like these bands. Here's "Last Train" from the 1989 La-Di-Da compilation.

thanks ever so (again) for unearthing these treasures and sending them on their way, and the kind words. "the last train home" was definately one of torquils finest moments - i'll let him know it's here.
sombrero releases can now also be found on myspace -
www.myspace.com/sombrerorecordings.
i'll be adding photos and ramblings as i go, and changing the tracks regularly - feel free to add anything you find there here.
and drop me a line again with an address where i can send you some "well done" presents.
