1992 and in the meantime, a nice pair.


I'm drinking a whiskey and full of anxiety while listening to Robin Lane and the Chartbusters (got the 3 disc set of their catalog today in the mail).
It's November 3, 2020 as I type.

Think back to that day and you can understand.

I know 2020 was a terrible shitshow of a year all the way around, but while my wife watches election returns in the other room I can't help but wonder if by the time this posts itself if we are all collectively looking back at 2020 with a warm nostalgia at what an idyllic time it was compared to where we are now.


This band appears to be from Fleet in the County of Hampshire in the UK.
This single was released on Turntable Friend.
That means it's quality.

According to Discogs this appears to be their sole release on vinyl, though as was usual at the time they have multiple songs on various cassette compilations.
Maybe someday some nice person while compile all that stuff for us, 
in the meantime this is some lovely indiepop

On the other side of the Atlantic in Richmond, VA, the Waking Hours were plying their trade with this fine indiepop single on the Brilliant label. This marking their first foray onto vinyl. There seems to be at least a couple or more compact discs that follow.
I'm constantly surprised at the volume of stuff that Richmond and surroundings was producing at this time. Perhaps someone ought to start some scholarly research to bring more indiepop goodness like this to light.

But that could just be the whiskey talking.
