Product Description

Hailing from the Midlands, THE MIGHTY LEMON DROPS emerged in the mid-1980s as one of the most exciting Indie Rock bands of their time. After their Indie hit debut single, ‘Like An Angel’ on Dan Treacy’s Dreamworld label, they signed to Chrysalis’ imprint Blue Guitar and then Sire, releasing six studio albums before disbanding in 1992. Uptight offers a unique insight into the band’s roots. Alongside that classic debut EP are BBC radio tracks and a session for the NME’s C86 cassette (including their C86 track ‘Happy Head’). It ends with their mid-1985 cassette sold at gigs, Some Of My Best Friends Are Songs, with Martin Gilks (tragically killed in a motorbike accident in 2006) on drums, which ends with a cover of The Velvet Underground classic, ‘There She Goes Again’.

My favourite band that I saw a number of times, and long for a reunion !!

A greats selection of tracks in lesser known recordings.

This music is timeless and puts the sampled nonsense around today to shame.

Pure guitar based indie with real musical ability.

How I wish Paul Marsh would come back on board and get together for a UK gig, anywhere !!, I would go.

Once went to a Fan Club only gig in London, as the Sherbert Monsters, 200 people including the band and the support, never forgotten.

A must have for all the droppies in the world, compilation that collects the lesser known and showcases the recordings you may have on vinyl all in one place.

Where do we go from Heaven !!

THANKS, CHERRY RED! 17 April 2014
By Marcio Baraldi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Another excellent archaeological work of Cherry Red Records. They dug up all demos, rare recordings and radio sessions available of the Mighty Lemon Drops. Anyway, all that hard to find material was gathered in this impeccable compilation, with good audio quality and a great accompanying booklet. This CD completes the discography of the band. What remains now is to release some DVDs with shows and clips urgent. Mandatory item for fans of the band.
