Amateur Hour’s debut, one of the white whale’s of the FFFM catalogue, now available again to celebrate the release of excellent third LP.

This LP came out a couple of years before I had any notion that something was stirring in the Swedish underground. Long gone and coveted by nearly everyone who caught a copy of their second LP it has become one of the most in-demand records in a catalogue of ridiculously in-demand records. Actually, in the spirit of not punishing myself with things I can’t afford, I haven’t really spent much time with it before. And, listening now, the difference between this and the follow up is marked. The noise and clatter of their later efforts is there in spades. But, while the pop element that makes their second two records so compelling is definitely in place, it’s aimed in a slightly different direction. The feel is slightly less brittle and speedy, more smoked out and stumbling. If anything it reminds me of that killer Red Kites CDr or even Magick Markers at their dreamiest. Whichever way you cut it, this is a major piece of the puzzle.... (Mint / New - with poster)
