The music is fantastic but we want more,
This review is from: Daunt Square To Elsewhere: Anthology 1982-88 (Audio CD)
All I really want to say about this release is that it's not enough. The music is splendid, an intoxicating mix of burnished melody and lyrical spite and perspicacity . As far as that sort of thing goes you will not hear better .
The thing is , admirable though this release is what is really required is comprehensive re--issue of Microdisneys, entire back catalogue .A lovely shiny box set would do with a disc of extras , Peel sessions that sort of thing. This double disc, while expanding on a previous best of ("Big Sleeping House") , does not do this criminally ignored band justice.
If you haven't heard the band before this is a good place to start, mainly because it's just about all that's available . Otherwise cross, those fingers , cross those toes and anything else that comes to mind and just maybe someone with their head screwed on in some record company somewhere will give us Microdisney fans what we really want .Their entire output on CD.....and then while they are at it they can re-issue all the Fatima Mansions stuff too.
