Those Dream Babes compilations are fantastic. I got a few in Monorail the last time I was in Glasgow.

I just picked up the compilation "Girls in the Garage" Vol. 1, and it's excellent excellent excellent. This is my favorite track off of it. The hand claps, the the singing, it's just all so perfect. I wish oldies radio played this sort of stuff instead of the stale songs they play over and over.

Did you really find that one on vinyl or cd? For last time I checked, they were sold on eBay for a banker's bonus each.

They're really good compilations though. My favourite songs on them are The Cupons - Turn Her Down and The Plommons - Last Train To Liverpool. Any information on the Cupons, whose song may well be the best song ever recorded between 3000BC and 1978AD, is very welcome. The Plommons showed that Swedish girls could write really good pop songs two decades before the Tidy Ups were born, but Chris the boy and the Cloud half-ruined my Plommons experience by sending me photos of the now reformed band, with all its members in their late 50s or early 60s.

I was just watching the tragically shortened DVD of the Peter Cook & Dudley Moore show Not only but also... when right at the start of "Episode" 4 up pops the girl group Goldie and the Gingerbreads singing the original version of 'Can't You Hear My Heart Beat'. Needless to say it was ace. Well worth a look. As is the whole DVD, which I presume you all own!

Martijn I really like you for really liking "turn her down", but you already knew that. I think it was you who force-fed me with it during the dtts era. Thanks for that if so! It really must be the best song ever written, probably. But I'm getting closer to taking that spot!

I have finally got myself a Shangri-La compilation. It seems like a properly put together one. Wow, they are great!

I spent two days wondering what dtts stands for. And Then Suddenly I realised who you (probably) are. But I still don't know what dtts stands for. :(

(But the song is so lovely. And so indiepop too!)

Ah! And Then Suddenly we were Dancing To The Sun, JA! I found a new favourite from the oriental girls in the garage special.... Naomi & The Boys - I'd Like To Know, true girlgroup and mixed with some of that specific asian cheesy listening they do so well and which i find so great! (japanese 80's ballads is shit hot right now.. in me head)

P.S. Why didn't you just ask? The answer was dead easy to find out. :)

Heh, I knew who you were kind of right away, I just liked to drop a subtle reference to your other blog in my reply. :)

Will go and find that song as soon as I'm home! (Which is on Wednesday...)

THE COOKIES' 'Chains - The Dimension Links 1962-1964' CD was (along with the CD reissue of ANOTHER SUNNY DAY's 'London Weekend') easily my most played album of last year!

Yeah i got that one too it's a really cool box, the line notes are excellent and except for it not including the Spector tunes it it is pretty perfect imo.
