AN UNJUSTIFIED FLOP?? (Part 1)
A new series in which I'll fish out a piece of vinyl (or CD single) from the collection. It will be one that probably not too many of you will know because it was a flop single. Or a relative flop. But it will also be one that I'm more than a tad fond of.
It was this coming up on random play the other day that gave me the idea:-
mp3 : The Young Knives - Here Comes The Rumour Mill
Released on 2 x 7" bits on vinyl in 2006 (and on CD single too). This actually reached #36 in the UK singles charts which back in 1986 would have meant a reasonable number of sales and a possible appearance on Top Of The Pops. But by the first decade of the 21st Century, it would only be a few thousand. At best.
Here's the interesting b-sides:-
mp3 : The Young Knives - Elaine
mp3 : The Young Knives - Kitchener
And the promo:-
I've a feeling The Young Knives might appear again in this irregular series.
