The Driscolls. The Complete Recordings.

Update 9/8/10: I've uploaded a new copy of the file and redirected the link. If any of you still have problems with it, let me know.

Other than a skeletal entry on Tweenet, there's not a lot of information about these guys to be found. I'm pretty sure they were from Bristol, and a several of their singles were released by Tea Time Records, a label they started with one of my favorite lost bands, Mousefolk. Like a lot of 80s indie groups, they seemed to exist mostly on compilations, appearing on at least fifteen different tapes (including Airspace II, Are You Ready?, Corrupt Postman, and Something's Burning In Paradise). They have a 60's garage pop sound that can fall anywhere between the Kinksian Mrs. Jones to the walloping Call Me Anything. Groovy Little Town was probably their biggest "hit", and like most of their tunes it's a total earworm.

I love that they haven't even bothered to even change their set dressing between these two videos (probably couldn't afford to).

I managed to download it, unzip it, and play it without any problem, Maybe mediafire was just being grumpy? Try it again and let me know.
