John Peel day 3 - somewhat later than planned... From the time I listened obsessively, the C86 thing seemed to be made for my taste and for a while almost every other song on the Peel show sounded a bit like this. All seemingly epic (although rarely reaching 3 minutes) this band deserved bigger and better than time turned out.
I think if JP was introducing this he'd probably say, "Now The Shop Assistants, who seem to have cobbled together some kind of a film with this."
Signing off with what should have been a worldwide number one smash hit in 1986 and a current staple of 80s nostalgia radio, but is, of course, neither of those things. I was baffled by the rest of the world 30 years ago, and almost certainly still will be if I'm here in 2045.
