The Wedding Present - Dalliance CDS

Happy New Year everyone, and apologies for the remarkable gap between postings. Somehow July to January has passed in something of a blur, but all is back to normal. So you can expect to wait only 2-3 months between postings.

Right. Are you sitting comfortably? Ready to feel old? Good. This came out 25 years ago.

Brilliant a-side, lovely Lou Reed cover on the b-side, which apparently was a Velvet Underground track originally and then a solo one, but I don't think I've heard the VU version. Anyway, this is great. 'Niagra' is also really good, with some bizarre time changes, and a massive snare drum. Enjoy.
