The Lemon Circus

Just finished listening, Pet Shop Boys love comes quickly is labeled Love Trip by Jean Claude Gavri not sure what that is. Sat here imagining you own a massive 80's vinyl shop somewhere in Manchester all those 12" singles must need some big man caves. Not heard the icicle works, propaganda or japan tracks but nice retro tunes. loved the talk talk, Spandau ballet mixes - Man Parish (I had the male stripper 12" - a nasty record sleeve with the photos :( not sure of the hip hop be bop tune, perhaps a grower. also never took to style council, the song is OK enough but nothing too exciting, but I'd say one of their better songs. But my fave was Yazoo's situation, just fresh and timeless. Always look forward to hearing it. Another eclectic spin down memory lane, even if half weren't in my memory banks - always nice to learn :)

As ever mate I appreciate you listening and commenting, it's not often you hear the 12 inch of "Love Comes Quickly", it's a great track, the US version of Talk Talk's "It's My Life" is quite a rare mix, completely agree re the Yazoo track, timeless.

.....Lemon Circus show for me tomorrow.
