Silent Command 40 - Rebuilding The Bridge: A Typical Girls Compilation

Silent Command 40 - Rebuilding The Bridge: A Typical Girls Compilation

Playing tracks by

The Sweater Girls, DJ Skip, The Pants Situation, Linda Smith, The Caution Curves and more.

In 2003, members of the old Typical Girls mailing list produced Rebuilding The Bridge. It was a track-by-track remake of Wanna Buy A Bridge?, the iconic 1980 Rough Trade compilation LP. Indie label Dark Beloved Cloud released it as a CD-R, even giving it a catalog number. This was an unusually high-quality tribute album: everyone rose to the occasion, putting their own spin on the original tracks. I'm glad to make it available in the modern-day streaming era.
