Forgotten Species

A band. A blog. A blogging band.

7” ┬árecords have always held talismanic properties for me. A band has two sides and about 7 minutes (before the sound quality of the pressing declines) to say what they need to say. There is no space for bullshit or filler. The Brits always understood this, which is why classic U.K. bands like The Smiths and Suede frequently released non-album B Sides that rivaled, and occasionally eclipsed, ┬átheir best material.

So I was pretty psyched to stumble upon the Singles Club from legendary British indie label Too Pure. A different 7” from a different band every month for a year. I didn’t even bother to see which bands were doing it, I just went to Paypal and forked over the cash. Then I heard this from The Lovely Eggs, who are participating. Fuck yes. That’s Gruff Rhys from SFA playing death. Fuck Fuck Yes Yes.
