About this item
There are a great many superb things that came out of Lancaster. In joint first place are me, and Bingo Records. Whilst the former is no longer in Lancaster, the latter is flying the flag proudly, and releasing some fine music into the stratosphere whilst doing so. We kick things off with Mr Ben and The Bens, bringing jangling optimism and refreshing, lyrical themes. It's an intoxicating combination of excellently written melodies and perfectly fitting vocal strafes.
The flipside sees Sun Drift taking things down slightly into a more minor-key melodic dream, with the sliding guitar trills and reverbed vocals carving a fuzzy line through the languid atmospheres and echoing bass wandering.
This is a superb debut outing from Bingo Records, complete with surprisingly hilarious self-effacing 'Zine' inside..this genuinely is a very well put together package, the excellent music matched perfectly by the huge amount of care taken over it's presentation. Lovely stuff.
