  2. Georgie Fame!? I had no idea Georgie Fame was like that. I must've gotten him mixed up with someone else. YaYa to "YehYeh"! I've heard this before, but only in the now distant past. Now its on my playlist!

  3. The 4 song set that begins with Porcelain Forehead is quite the pinball game!

  5. ....and that Mogwai! Great, and to be followed by "Cattle Herder's Chant"? I might have to listen to that 70 times.

  6. The Eccodek is quite charming in a kinda (good) 90s way.

  9. Wow! Thanks for the comments, which are very helpful.

    Not recognising the name "Messina" until after I played that 60s surf song has been vaguely haunting me ever since. There are some 70s sounds that I cannot forgive...

    (ha ha)
