The fish-netted ass on the back cover of this much sought after release on Mexican Summer is a little racy for this time in the morning. I think I need to go and have a(nother) cold shower. While I do that you can listen to this album for me, right? Now, many albums we get in stock you think - what in Gods name have they been listening to? With this one its pretty easy to spot. My Bloody Valentine. That's probably it. But for a bit of variation they've tuned into some Swirlies, a bit of Slowdive, a track or two of Chapterhouse and to bring you bang up to date they've checked out the A Sunny Day in Glasgow discs. See what I'm saying? Its shoe-gaze all the way but we all agree here that its done splendidly well. Firstly everything is nicely buried and distorted so it creates that heat haze of later period MBV rather than the clean-gaze of some records I've heard. Think Deerhunter 'Weird Era' Astrobrite album from years ago that sounded like MBV recorded in a gutter (probably where Shields lives these days) or any of the aforementioned groups heard from inside a lawnmower. The vinyl is limited to 750 and is hand reared, corn fed, line caught, free range.
