Messy days and crosswords: Tatooine Returns

Posted in Album, Rediscover by R on February 1, 2015

Let’s be clear.

‘Hey’ is the greatest shoegaze track to emerge out of the 90s.

I would listen to ‘Hey’ before I listened to ‘Soon’ or ‘Alison’ or ‘Pearl’ or ‘Black Metallic.’

And Blind Mr. Jones are only the most exotic group to ever walk the earth.

Because Blind Mr. Jones are the only the only group I have ever known to have a flautist as a band member.

Yet no one has a damn clue where they got to.

How many flautists could there possibly be in Marlow?

(filling in crosswords on park benches)

——

Shoegaze community, you have let me down.

Your tenacity is a delusion. Your loyalty is an illusion.

Anyhoo, St. Marie Records are reissuing Tatooine.

I’ve only been playing nothing else for 4 days.

Hang your heads and soothe your conscience.

Maybe don’t listen to anything else for a while.
