Welcome to my blog!

UPDATE: Mediafire have suspended my account and locked my downloads. Having endured the tedium of re-uploading everything I had previously hosted on Mega Upload onto Mediafire earlier this year, I can't be arsed re-uploading everything again.

So please don't ask for things to be reuploaded!

I undertake this venture knowing that I don't have the spare time to do it, but feel that these artists NEED TO BE HEARD (please excuse my shouting!). Or is that I think I need to be heard? Or that there are (or have been) some great music blogs that have inspired me to wanna jump on the bandwagon? Probably all of the above??I hope you enjoy the blog. If I turn one person onto these bands that turned me on then it will all have been worth it!

Underground Lovers singles

Here's a few Underground Lovers singles.

The lead tracks are remixed and edited versions of album tracks, and the remaining tracks are non-album tracks that you won't find on itunes or Spotify.

I was right is one of the highlights of the excellent Leaves Me Blind album, as previously featured on this blog. Rhinestone Easy is the pick of the remaining tracks, featuring a funky bassline and whispered vocals over an eerie guitar drone. It is distinctly different from the material on Leaves Me Blind, which probably explains why it didn't appear on the album.

Las Vegas and Beautiful World are from the Dream It Down album. I first heard Las Vegas at the Big Day Out festival in Sydney in 1994 (?), prior to the release of  Dream It Down, and thought it was the beez kneez! But then I was disappointed when I first heard the recorded version, and also every time I've subsequently heard the song! Hopefully you enjoy it for what it is, without the baggage I carry! Light and Terrific and Free are the best of the remaining tracks on these two singles, both being short but sweet pieces of Undies shoegazery.
