Poignant little 7" this. The Trimdon Grange Explosion are a relatively new incarnation of psych-folk-rockers The Eighteenth Day Of May and this is their first 7". The A-side is a classic piece of psych rock goodness that was originally composed by Judy Henske and Jerry Yester of the Lovin' Spoonful. It brings to mind the obvious San Fernando valley 60's hippy bands with the production reminding me of the main theme to Vampiros Lesbos so that's no bad thing. The B-side is a cover of a track written way back 1882 by the "Pitman Poet" of the Durham coalfield, Tommy Armstrong who originally sold the sheet music to raise cash for the wives and children effected by the the mining disaster known as The Trimdon Grange Explosion. Folkier and obviously more traditional than the A-side, it's a pretty sad song if you dwell on the lyrics.
