Blog round-up - Throw Me Away

First up a mention in the influential Swedish fanzine, Throw Me Away:

The Distractions – Black Velvet (EP)

De gav ut en enda singel på Factory och ett litet bortglömt album på Island Records. Nick Halliwell fortsätter sin musikaliska mission att återskapa det alternativa 1980-tal där rosor, svarta strumpeband och förmågan att förneka sina egna hjärtslag är lika oersättliga delar av musikhistorien som någonsin Sarah Records.

They released one single on Factory and a small forgotten album on Island Records. Nick Halliwell continues his musical mission to restore the alternative 1980s where roses, black socks [?!] and the ability to deny their own heartbeat is as irreplaceable a part of music history as Sarah Records.

Read more about the legendary Sarah Records here.

And don't forget to check out the previous articles on Throw Me Away featuring Paul Simpson of The Wild Swans and a piece on the Occultation Recordings label itself.
