Bed, Table, Chair



The Edsel Auctioneer were Leeds' answer to Dinosaur Jr. and appeared around the time (98) when UK bands like Teenage Fanclub were taking elements from US bands like Dinosaur and Buffalo Tom, throwing in influences like Neil Young and producing a glorious pop noise. The two songs today were the double A Sides of their debut 7". The band released two albums "Simmer" in 92 and "The Good Time Music Of" in 95.

I saw the edsel auctioneer supporting the wedding present in Kilburn, sometime in 1990/91? There's an official bootleg of the gig in which you can (sadly) hear me shout "Where are your shorts Dave?" and he replies it's too cold for shorts.
I went to the gig alone, and so have never relly had the opportunity to tell anyone that. Thanks for the auctioneer tracks.

If you are using a mac you can just click on the link to download them. If you have a PC I would have thought right click save target as would do the trick? Maybe someone with a PC can confirm?

To confirm as a PC user. I just click on them and that opens the save as dialog box. Right click>Save As also works as well. I am confused as to how he gets zip archives containing text files.

If anonymous is downloading them at work etc maybe the firewall there replaces files with certain extensions with a zip file and a warning? What does the text file say?
