I was kind of astonished that this lot haven’t ever featured in any of my own posts on this blog.  They did appear over at the old place as this, from 7 July 2011, testifies:-

I liked this a lot when it was released back in 2009. I still do:-

mp3 : The Horrors – Who Can Say

OK. So they don’t do anything us 40-somethings havent heard before, but they do it so well.

And if I was 30 years younger I wouldn’t be ashamed to think The Horrors were the saviours of rock’n’roll. And I’d be angry that they are another who don’t get the chart success they deserve.

The single was released in May 2009 just a week after the LP Primary Colours. The single was a flop and the album peaked at #25. Their new LP is out next week……Comrade Colin has said it’s a belter and he’s always a great judge when it comes to these things.

Here’s the b-side:-

mp3 : The Horrors – You Could Never Tell

** the mp3s with the original post back in 2011 were lifted from the CD album.  This time round, thanks to Drew gifting me this particular single when we hooked up last year, they’re from the vinyl.

  1. Piley and Modo’s Podrophenia podcast put me onto these guyes (both are from Southend). I’m a 50 something and the Horrors have been my favourite current band since Primary Colours – their albums have great opening tracks – Mirror’s Image is Kevin Shields writ large and all the better for it. Skying is a more consistent one (Dive in, Moving Further Away Wide Eyed) and I will come back to the big tune later, and Luminous was on my car stereo a lot in 2014 particularly driving through France which I associate the opening track with (Chasing Shadows), the single (So now you know) and the rest. And ‘Still life’ from Skying is like that Changing the Rain moment in Hi Fidelity – put it on in a record shop and another copy of Skying is sold. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHPLjyvPkBU. And I am such an old git and live in the middle of nowhere so I don’t get into the shops much so have not listened to V on streaming yet. So now you know.
