The Adam Faith Experience

Made up of members of several other Edinburgh bands Jesse Garon And The Desperadoes eclipsed these bands and consistantly produced pop songs that have stood the test of time far better then nearly every other band they'd get lumped together with. Yes they had their share of fuzzy ramshackle songs which could have also been by The Shop Assistants, early Primitives or Darling Buds but their best songs, like the two here, should have brought the band to the atttention of far more people then they ultimately did. Both of these songs were collected together with most of their singles on the compilation "A Cabinet Of Curiosities" although deleted this, and their only proper album "Nixon" often turn up on ebay sold by Avalanche Records who released the albums.
Fran Schoppler the band's vocalist has also released her own album in recent years, featuring Mick Cooke from Belle and Sebastian details of that can be found at her website below.

I really loved this band. I still have a t-shirt with the cover of "A Cabinet Of Curiosities" on it that my friend bought for me while she studied in Scotland. One of my favorite songs is "I'm Up Here." I'll have to check out Fran's solo record. Thanks for posting this.
