I love a good re-issue to open my eyes and ears to things i've missed out on in my life. I noticed Swell Maps "A Trip to Marineville" purely for the amazing cover, a house on fire, brilliant. Then when i actually got around to listening to it, i just thought, hang on, why the fuck don't more people know about this band?! File under that new wave/no wave/punk that was kicking around in the late 70s and early 80s. One of the best buys of this year so far
here are 2 of my favourite tracks from it...
