PRE 036: CLOSE LOBSTERS – Janice Long session 15​.​07​.​86

by Close Lobsters

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Get both sessions ten-inchers by Close Lobsters – PRE 036 and PRE 037 – plus all the postcards … and an added bonus disc featuring their Radio Clyde session from March 1989.

    This is unavailable elsewhere and will not be sold on its own away from this bundle – and it includes an ultra-rare cover version of Soft Cell's Say Hello, Wave Goodbye ! Also features Lovely Little Swan, La Grande Ennui [Knee Trembler] and Nature Thing.

    BUNDLE BUYERS PLEASE NOTE -- the second download code will be included with the vinyl on a slip of paper inside the envelope containing the postcards -- the first is released automatically when you buy the records. I still cannot work out how to send both automatically.

    Includes unlimited streaming of PRE 036: CLOSE LOBSTERS – Janice Long session 15.07.86 via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Even before the release of the debut single from off-kilter Scottish indie-pop legends Close Lobsters, the late, lamented Janice Long got them in for their first outing at the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios. They recorded a session featuring four staples from their blistering live set at the time – which was peak-hour C86.

    Two of the songs included here in early versions ended up re-recorded as A-sides of singles, paving the way to a close shave with stardom via their incredible debut album ‘Foxheads Stalk This Land’, released a year later.

    Ten-inch vinyl limited edition of 350 copies featuring a set of postcards plus download codes – and a sleeve essay by The Ferocious Apache, Paisley’s answer to the Cappuccino Kid.

    Songsheet: Never Seen Before, Pathetic Trivia, Heaven … Rains [Going To Heaven To See If It Rains], Nothing Really Matters
