The saddest song ever written.
Mobile Phone Stuff
My little used mobile 'phone is a Siemens S55. I created these files as my background and ring tone. I did ask first before posting them here, but I bet Julianne's forgotten!

Here are a few rare tracks that you ought to listen to.
|Olta Boka||Zemr n e lam peng||Eurovision||Shows why Eurovision is so crap when this failed to win.|
|Si-Se||Como el Cielo||Tributo a the Cure||Just Like Heaven (Total Mix). Didn't think The Cure could sound like this did you!|
|The Bolshoi||Away||Friends||If this isn't in your record collection, you should be ashamed!|
|Kite||Greenwich Park||Demo Tape||Trevor Tanner recorded several tracks after The Bolshoi's demise. This is one of my favourites and unreleased.|
|Farmer's Boys||The Way You Made Me Cry||John Peel Session||What the hell. Not exactly trendy, but they wrote some great songs. So there!|
|Strawberry Switchblade||Go Away||John Peel Session||The best version|
|Picture Book||Laughing In To My Hand||Single||If only I still had my copy of the single. This is from the one I added to their demo tape, so apologies for the quality.|
|All About Eve||Silver Song||Single||Never released on CD and there have been enough excuses to do so and it's too good to remain hidden.|
|Associates||This Party Fears Two||12" Single||It doesn't get better than this. Thank you Billy, RIP.|
|Barry Andrews||Rossmore Road||7" Single||Okay, who's been along to see Rossmore Road on the strength of this? Er, apart from me that is!|
