- Electric Guitars In Their Hearts by The Chesterfields
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 February 2014
More C86 era re-issues, this time from a band who onced amused the teenage me by titling their debut album ‘Kettle’. Yup I was really tickled by that back then.The Chesterfields were proponents of the jangly, strummy upbeat indie that was made successful by the likes of The Housemartins and was less chart botheringly played by the charming likes of (early) The Wolfhounds and The June Brides.
This ‘best of’ is jam packed with 27 swift, scruffy little tracks which are almost without exception resolutely upbeat. They seem to get a little more discordant around the time of second album ‘Crocodile Tears’ there’s some fantastic little tunes here ‘Sob Sob Story’ has some great C86 jangles and very English delivery somewhere between The Kinks and Brilliant Corners. Its all quite brilliantly lopsided and gloriously breezy indie tunes like ‘Let It Go’ and ‘Lunchtime For the Wild Youth’ blast along in a sea of tuneful strums.
Unpretentious home-made indie of the day and well worth picking up if you were into the C86/fanzine/twee-pop/DIY scenes of the era.
