DROP 47

Episode 4's only record - the twelve inch Strike Up Matches has become known as one of the most expensive indiepop records there are. According to the East Village page (cause it's the same band) on Indiepages it been sold for around $500, which is ridiculous, but not as ridiculous as $600 for the East Village single collection Hot Rod Hotel. That has been reissued now (as part of the new deluxe edition of Drop Out on Excellent Records), but still no sign of Strike Up Matches... So here is one of the four songs on it. They're all more acoustic than the East Village stuff, and not as good as East Village at their best moments. It's still fantastic though, so thanks for the songs Ben!

Nice one Chris/Kris, any chance of posting the other 3 tracks? A friend of mine picked this 12" up for free when he was doing spot of recording, lucky get! Unfortunately he hasn't quite mastered how to record on his computer yet so he can't do me any MP3's of them

Hiya! Didn't know where to post this so I'll post it here: I was aware of your blog but wasn't really paying attention (me all over) and I heard your radio show this morning (on Listen Again). You won me over straight away by playing Dolly Mixture's 'Side Street Walker'. :) I'll keep listening. xx

hello derek!
not much point in doing that now really. the whole thing has been circulating on filesharing and torrent sites for quite a while now. if you really want it, you'll find it easy enough.
