Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Fourth Drawer Down’ by Scottish duo THE ASSOCIATES
Released: October 1981 – a compilation album featuring all
A- and B-sides from the six singles the band released that year

ALL MUSIC wrote: “Just as there are Smiths fans who listen intently to Johnny Marr’s guitar playing and attempt to block out Morrissey’s flamboyance, there surely are numerous beings who tune out Mackenzie’s crooning to hone in on Rankine’s actions. Those who can appreciate both are in for a real feast, and those who prefer one over the other still have much to sink their teeth into.” Score: 4,5/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Theatrical, monumental and dazzling pop extravaganza
with Billy Mackenzie‘s unique, falsetto vox as the driving force. Bombast at its very best.

TOP TRACK: ‘White Car In Germany’ – an outstanding 24 Karat crackerjack…
