Price: $13.00
"There Goes Concorde Again is accurately described by the Native Hipsters head honcho William Wilding as "a collection of stuff (music/noises/words), recorded with various people at various times between 1979 and 2001". A bona fide lo-fi, punk-rock, cottage-industry product it was recorded in a living room and released on the Native Hipsters own label. Five hundred 7" singles were printed up (in 1980) with the band rubber-stamping each label individually and Blue Petering the covers by cutting up humungous hoarding posters of Kevin Keegan. If you think thats bizarre, wait until you hear the record itself. Fundamentally, it consists of female vocalist (in the loosest sense) Blatt, vacantly intoning a mundane monologue, "Outside fat woman struggle up the hill", accompanied by banana-finger bass plodding and random shards of noise. Apparently, the idea was that the guitars sounded like chickens pecking up grain. Hmm. The overall vibe is of The Fall soundtracking a surreal kitchen-sink drama co-starring Salvador Dali and Rita Tushingham. Yes, that blimmin marvellous. The fact that there are another 16 similarly bonkers tracks means that There Goes Concorde Again is pure genius." - Chris King. The Native Hipsters were included on the first Instant Pop Classics LP.
