Ambition Records 45, 1989
Some of the later stuff by this Southampton indie-pop outfit seemed a bit impenetrable to me, but I've always liked this debut 45 for its headlong, rushed rhythm and sweet, nervous vocal. This is another of a number of records on Little Hits that were introduced to me by Brian Kirk, CEO of the Bus Stop Label who sent me loads of great singles back in the late 80s and early 90s. For some reason, this was very well distributed in Lawrence, Kansas; every store seemed to have a couple, and I bought three or four when they were inevitably marked down to 99 cents. I seem to just have the one now, though, so I hope I've paid Brian's generosity forward.
