The Terrible Hildas (The Chesterfields Simon Barber) were the sleeve designers for The Subway Organization back in the 1980s. That influential label had two compilations titled Take The Subway To Your Suburb and Surfin’ In The Subway. Hmmm. Given the title and band name I wonder what this EP by this internet project (I presume it is) sounds like.
Well the EP’s title track is definitely a blast back to those heady days of fanzines and flexi discs. Whilst the aforementioned song is very retro sounding the two other tracks here, still wrought with C86 influences, have a more recent feel especially on I Know. I know that guitar playing from somewhere. The band feature US based Lori on vocals and UK based Simon on guitar. Now that name rings a bell in more ways than one. What are the chances eh? Anyway give this a spin and dance like it’s 1985!
