The Jennifers - Flying (1991)

This is a tape that I bought at a Jennifers gig in Oxford, sometime in 1992. Hailing from the City of Dreaming Spires itself, they enjoyed an enthusiastic and noisy local following. Something that I couldn't understand, their music was then highly derivative of succesfull shoegazing bands such as Ride or Slowdive. The singer Gareth 'Gaz' Coombes and the drummer Danny Goffey later formed the better known band Supergrass.

Quigley - A Kind Of Loving (1995)

Roger Quigley's first release on a record label called Croissant-neuf, which was just Vespertine Records under a different name I think. The last - hidden - track is actually Roger Quigley singing over Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 5, Part III, Adagietto.

There are a lot of similarities between Quigley's earlier output and some compositions by the Durutti Column, I'm thinking especially about the Tomorrow EP released in 1986.

Allen Ginsberg / Hula Hoop - Split 7'' (1998)

Split 7" single with Allen Ginsberg reading one of his poem on side A ; and on side B, American indie popsters Hula Hoop. I personally like this reading of Kral Majales better than the one on the 'Holy Soul Jelly Roll ' 4 CD box set released in 1994. So be sure to download this even if you already know Ginsberg's work.
