‘A snapshot of how a couple of pop fanatics got carried away over a few beers and decided there was more to pop life than the throwaway world of the fashion conscious London music scene...’
I strongly believe that a lot of good can come out of fanatical obsession (as long as it is of the healthy kind rather than of the collection of human kidney’s or other body parts kind.) The Track & Field organisation just reaffirm my belief that this is the case. The organisation was born from love, devotion and the desire to here “the music you never hear on the radio” in 1999 with the opening of the Track & Field club.
Although the original Track & Field London club shut its doors for the last time on the 23rd of May this year, this compilation remains a refuge for the bands pushed to edge of the music scenes and the listeners who gravitate towards them.
The compilation contains 28 bands who appeared at a Track & Field events over the years. The songs include rare and exclusive tracks from the likes of The Aislers Set, The Clientele, Butterflies of Love, Saloon and Dressy Bessy. Each track fits together as comfortably as a hand in a glove. The compilation contains whimsical twinkling tunes such mother superior teardrop factory by homescience, the melancholy you will be safe by James William Hindle and even country classics in the form of Galveston performed here by Ladybug Transitor.
A nice of collection of songs for anyone wishing to nostalgically remember the days of track and field, or for that matter, for anyone who just likes good pop music.
