Back in November 1981 when this promo was unleashed on the world, I was as skinny as these boys from Edinburgh. To look at me now, you'd never think it.
Fire Engines have been a huge influence on so many bands over the past 30 years, and frontman Davey Henderson has also been part of many other great bands such as Win and Nectarine No.9. But there's just something particularly primal and wonderful about the really early releases that were so out of place with the slick vocals and production often associated with the era:-
mp3 : Fire Engines - Big Gold Dream
mp3 : Fire Engines - Sympathetic Anaesthetic
mp3 : Fire Engines - New Thing In Cartons
More jock'n'roll nostalgia tomorrow.
