Whilst I’m not an absolutely huge fan of the Associates I do like them and I enjoy a lot of their work. I think it was a massive shame about Billy, but there you go. So for me it was nice to stumble over this in a second hand shop and pick it up for nothing. It’s a great single, and I’d never heard it before.
I’ve been a fan of The Associates since I first heard ‘White Car in Germany’ and ‘Q Quarters’. This is a great compilation of their material over the years. Nice to listen to all of it together.
