intro

Excellent 5 track EP of beautifully remastered material from the classic late 80's indiepop group the Razorcuts


The 'A is for Alphabet' EP features 5 tracks from the classic late 80's indiepop group the Razorcuts,. All have been previously released on either the Creation or Caff or Flying Nun labels, but have now been beautifully remastered for the cool kids of today who were too young for C-86. Gregory Webster is the perfect vocalist for bassist Tim Vass's lyrics . All the songs here have a jangling Byrds style Rickenbacker pop sound which has you both moving your head wihout you knowing it and also, if you are old enough, longing for your lost years of wearing Chelsea boots (If you dont know what they are ask your Mum) The Razorcuts were excellent , the ultimate 60's pop summer vibe. The last two tracks, 'Sometimes I Worry About You' and 'For Always' are demos, but even they shine like diamonds in the mud.



Track Listing:-
1 A is for Alphabet
2 First Day
3 Snowbound
4 Sometimes I Worry About You
5 For Always
