Part 18 in the 7″ played alphabetically series. This week we continue the catch up started in #487 (continuing next week as well), where we play all the singles in A-E that were obtained since the series first started several years ago. I love Edwin Collins cover of the Vic Goddard track Won’t Turn Back. One of the bands from #485 ‘book a show in 1995′ series returns with an earlier 7″ (Citizens’ Utilities) that sounds real good. Scottish band The Commercials spun a bit like Scars on their lone 7″ 16 Again And Again. The Clouds sound great on their 1987 single, as does Billy Childish on the CTMF 7″. Tom Croose give a singular re-edit of a Fleetwood Mac song, and Dave Davies almost sounds like Mott the Hoople. Felt’s Lawrence closes the show with the awesome It Fell Off The Back Of A Lorry – EVERY song has its story – listen and love.
