Back to basics

I’m going try a few days of vinyl rips to get this blog back on track. This is from the Farmer’s Boys 2nd album With These Hands which still isn’t available on CD unless you want to pay over £70 for a Japanese import. Their 1st album Get Out & Walk has finally been reissued (with bonus tracks) and is available at the usual outlets. I have to admit I’m only familiar with a couple of tracks but I’ll be investing in a copy soon.

On previous posts I’ve described their sound as a cross between the Monochrome Set and The Smiths. The Amazon reviewer also throws Orange Juice and the Human League into the mix and I can see what he means.
