The Soup Dragons – Head Gone Astray (12″)

soupyFrom 1987 and some tuneful garage rock from Scotland’s Soup Dragons. With a tinge of vinyl noise it doesn’t spoil the enthusiasm of these tracks. Predating the indie stuff of the 90’s ( a scene that ironically they had their most success) it is in the famous C86 style, almost like the Buzzcocks. It was produced by Pat Collier of The Vibrators. The Buzzcocks resemblance is even more evident in the punkier “Girl In The World” but the gem is the epic anthem “So Sad I Feel”. At over 7 mins it is a grower and was off the album “Hang Ten”, could be played at any Indie Club Night, I know I will.
