    We conclude, as promised last week, with two gems from Australia's finest, The Go-Betweens. First, The Ghost And The Black Hat, from their fourth LP Liberty Belle and the Black Diamond Express (Beggars Banquet 1986), then we conclude with the beautiful Hope Then Strife, with its haunting refrain @ 0:40, then the full glory of the chorus @ 0:58. I get a lump in my throat every time. It concludes their fifth LP Tallulah (Beggars Banquet 1987). Hope you like them too. Until next week ...

    Silent Noise were a punk quartet from Norwich who, like many of their contemporaries, sadly only released one single on an independent label, and here it is, I've Been Hurt (So Many Times Before) (Easy Records 7" 1979). Hope you like its Buzzcockian charms.

    The Confusions are an indie pop band formed in Sundsvall Sweden in the early 90s around the same times as Sweden's The Cardigans. This is the official video for the excellent single I Won't Be Sober When This Is Over (Massproduktion CDr 2009), what a great title! From their ninth LP A Permanent Marker (Massproduktion 2009). Buy here: https://theconfusionssvl.bandcamp.co...rmanent-marker.. "Don't look back in anger, my baby, learn your lesson well".

    The Beatles answered the challenge laid down by The Rolling Stones with their eleventh U.K. single Day Tripper c/w We Can Work It Out (Parlophone 7" 1965), the first double-A side single (in the U.S. they flipped the tracks). Their hardest rock track so far, with a guitar riff to rival Keith Richards, and enough lyrical drug & sex references to satisfy a Mick Jagger. Here are the two promo films for them, shot at Twickenham Studios. Hard to believe the dancers at the beginning of the first are now grannies in their 70s awaiting their COVID-19 vaccines. One of my favourites of theirs, and a great way to start the year, methinks. Until next week ...

    Something modern now. Scott & Charlene's Wedding (now where did they get that band name from?) hail from Footscray, Australia (a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria) and this is the official video for their Lou Reed inspired track Back In The Corner, from their six track E.P. When In Rome - Carpe Diem (Bedroom Suck 12" 2019). Buy here: https://scottandcharleneswedding.ban...ome-carpe-diem.

    The Rockin' Berries were a Birmingham Beat Group who spent most of their time playing in West Germany. This is their superb third single He's In Town (Piccadilly 7" 1964). This was the third version of the Gerry Goffin & Carole King classic released in a year. The weakest version oddly was the original U.S. version by The Tokens (B. T. Puppy Records 7" 1964), and the strongest being the French language version Tu La Revois by Ria Bartok, from the Tu La Revois E.P. (France only: Columbia 7" 1965) which I'll post at a later date. Apologies in advance for the brief appearance of a paedophile at the beginning and end.

    The Rivals (https://www.boredteenagers.co.uk/RIVALS1.htm) were a punk band formed in Ramsgate Kent over Christmas 1976 and this is their first indie single release Future Rights (Ace Records 7" 1979). They released one more single before, like so many of their contemporaries, disbanding. A shame, as this is really good.

    We start the year with a rare promo film for The Go-Betweens fourth single Your Turn, My Turn (Australia only: Missing Link 7" 1981), which also turned up on their debut U.K. LP Send Me A Lullaby (Missing Link/Rough Trade 1981). God, they look so young and the late Grant McLennan has hair! Hope you like it. Next week, I'll post a couple of undiscovered gems of theirs.

    Young Marble Giants were a post-punk trio from Cardiff, comprising of the Moxham brothers and singer Alison Statton, and this is the excellent single Final Day (Rough Trade 7" 1980). Absolutely brilliant.
