I’m off tonight to what I think might turn out to be one of the great gigs of 2013. The banner above says it all.
Here’s a repeat post from September 2012:-
It’s now five and a bit years since The Twilight Sad they first came to wider attention thanks to the stunning early singles and debut LP. They’ve been consistently excellent ever since. To the best of my knowledge, the first two singles were only ever made available on 7″ vinyl, albeit CD promo copies are out there. It seems appropriate to share them with you straight from the vinyl:-
mp3 : The Twilight Sad – And She Would Darken The Memory
mp3 : The Twilight Sad – That Summer, At Home I Had Become The Invisible Boy (Decomposed by Ensemble)
mp3 : The Twilight Sad – That Summer, At Home I Had Become The Invisible Boy
mp3 : The Twilight Sad – Watching That Chair Painted Yellow
Warning for those of you who might not know these songs. There’s regular use of a swear word in That Summer…. one that some folk find offensive…the ‘c’ word. It’s a word that sounds especially brutal when delivered in a hard West of Scotland brogue.
I love both of these 45s. And if it hadn’t been for the fact I only picked them up some six months after release (being away in Canada for much of 2007) then one of them would certainly have made the 45 45s at 45 countdown the following year.
