Today I’m popping back just two decades to 1994 and it’s my second choice from Japan, Pizzicato Five. They released many many albums and for me sat somewhere to the left of St Etienne with some B-52s and DeeLite mixed in. No hits in the UK but this track is apparently much beloved of Futurama fans as it crops up in Season 4 episode 5 ‘Leela’s Dream’. Also worth checking out are ‘Twiggy Twiggy’ and ‘Magic Carpet Ride’, but I have opted for the quite lovely ‘Baby Love Child’.
Meanwhile over to Roy:
“A double ‘lost in time’ for today’s selection from 1995 – both band and track. ‘I Suppose’ by Puressence and another of my favourite ever tracks.
By far the best band from Manchester you’ve never heard of, it was just their bad luck to be from that City at the same time that Oasis launched themselves on the worldUnfathomably. huge in Greece and The Balkans, and after four mostly, quite brilliant, albums and a few singles that bothered the lower reaches of the Top 40, they finally called it a day in 2013.”
