Play that egg shaker!

Earlier this week Saint Etienne appeared live in the studio on Mark Radcliffe's BBC Radio 2 show and performed three songs; a samba stylee version of their current single 'Good Thing', the previous single from 'Tales From Turnpike House', 'Side Streets' and a current B-side and Womack & Womack cover 'Missing Persons Bureau' Never one to miss a Saint Etienne opportunity, and waiting for their alleged US tour early next year, here's the complete session for your listening pleasure.

- Saint Etienne - Good Thing

- Saint Etienne - Missing Persons Bureau

- Saint Etienne - Side Streets

The album isn't out in the US till next year but this is a good import price here

The band's website is here

Thanks for posting these, Steve!

You don't happen to have a source for the alternate versions of the songs that are used in the Finisterre film, do you? Some of them were just instrumental versions, others seemed to be different arrangements entirely.
