I must admit to letting English Summer fall from my sight after the abandonment of their Wedding project. But after catching the cover art for their new single Tall Stories I gave it a listen. And am I glad that I did! That artwork suggested to me that the band had reverted back to their post-punk/mid eighties indie influences. And guess what?
Tall Stories sounds like it is a long lost abandoned single by The Bodines for Creation Records circa mid 1980s. And it’s just incidental that the song shares it’s name with the track which appeared on the Glossop legends sole long player Played. I don’t think we have been. Have we? Most excellent either way.
