The Day Before Yesterday's Man
Sorry to do another list post so soon. No exucse really. I've plenty to post about (like the blowing up of my toilet. Yes, really), but i really need to get to sleep. Drinking on a Sunday night is desperately irresponsible. But certainly a good way of delaying the inevitable. Another method of doing just that is to disappear down memory lane, where nothing shocks and there aren't any nasty surprises. And so it is that I delve into the age when I still thought buying CD singles was a financially intelligent thing to do. Round about 1997-1998, the last few days of secondary education, the amazing feeling that I was finally going to escape a school that had served me well, but in all honesty I'd never really liked that much. Looking forward to a future in a whole different town or city, where there would be girls, and excitement, and nights out, and girls. Did I mention girls? Anyway...
Here are the tracks that I felt obliged to buy on CD. Only Ultrasound tempted me enough to go on and buy the album. And to be honest that was a mistake, as the B Side listed here was far and away the best thing they ever released. So, raise a cheer for the also rans from the fag end of Britpop*:
1. Ultrasound - 'Kurt Russell'
2. The Supernaturals - 'The Day Before Yesterday's Man'
3. Wireless - 'I Need You'
4. Superstar - 'Everyday I Fall Apart'
5. The Wannadies - 'You And Me Song'
6. Longpigs - 'She Said'
7. Geneva - 'No One Speaks'
8. The Dandy Warhols - 'Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth'
9. Gay Dad - 'To Earth With Love'
10. Rialto - 'Monday Morning 5-19'
*Yes, I know they're not all British, smartypants. You can stick Rialto's two drumkits (yes, two) up your arse.
