The album consists of 14 rare, exclusive or unreleased songs, all of which are more than worthy to be released as singles. Some of our favorite bands, bands which have graced these pages more than once, are represented: The Popguns; Strawberry Whiplash; Bubblegum Lemonade; Math and Physics Club; and The Hermit Crabs among them. So to demonstrate the quality of the record we've selected offerings from bands who have rarely or never been on these pages. So thrill to the superb "Postcard" and "Talk" from Swedes The Electric Pop Group and Tinsel Heart, respectively. "Something Falls" by Last leaves may remind the listener of The Lucksmiths, and since three quarters of that defunct band are in Last Leaves, it is perfectly understandable. Also included below are notable offerings from English band Catenary Wires and The Royal Landscape Society from Spain. We aren't waiting for the marketplace to decide, there is no need. Matinee Idols is a pop classic right out of the gate.
Matinee Idols is out now in CD and digital formats.
