All revved Up



Over at the very wonderful Indie MP3 blog today (go there now) you will find a feature and three downloads by The Motorcycle Boy this was the band that Alex Taylor of The Shop Assistants formed with members of Meat Whiplash after the first Shop Assistants album. They released the very well received single "Big Rock Candy Mountain" signed to a major label and after a couple of non-performing but great singles, their one and only album was recorded but never released. Surely there's a market for a release now with the singles added on. Are you listening Cherry Red, Vinyl Japan, anyone? Here's some more of the songs from their singles to enjoy.


- The Motorcycle Boy - Trying To Be Kind

- The Motorcycle Boy - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

- The Motorcycle Boy - His Latest Flame

And in case you forgot more Motorcycle Boy here

I fully agree. Some label needs to put out all recordings by The Motorcycle Boy ASAP. After all, The Primitives and The Darling Buds have been compiled, and The Motorcycle Boy was just as good. I emailed the people at Cherry Red, and at first they seemed interested. Later, they said they'd pass on the idea. Someone has created a myspace for The Motorcycle Boy. Those who have a myspace should use it to stress the importance of compiling and releasing this band. Right now, the myspace is being solely used by some motorcycle business which is ridiculous.
