Better late than never...

Back in April when I posted the brilliant 12-inch version of Uncertain Smile by The The I mentioned that I would post the b-sides if anyone was interested. I had a couple of immediate responses and another one yesterday, so here they are at last.

One word of warning, the b-side is pressed slightly off centre – something I didn’t realise until today. Hopefully, it’s not too noticeable.
Buy The The here

Sir, you are a true gent. It's years since I listened to these gems, wandering gloomily around university, so thanks for giving them back to me.


Mick said...

You're very welcome, Elliot. Glad to bring a bit of gloom back into your life.

JC said...

Thank You. That's all that needs to be said

Our local record shop, back in the early 80s, used to do 'lucky bags' of singles. Basically, any singles that hadn't sold well and that they excess copies of, they would put five or six of them into brown paper bags and sell them for a pound. One of my school-friends bought such a bag and then gave me the two singles that he didn't like. One was 'Just One Cornetto' by Pookiesnakenburger and the other was 'Uncertain Smile' by The The.
How stupid must he feel?

'Orange Kisses...' was always my favourite track from it and it brings back so many memories.
