Loft - Model Village / Rickety Frame
Label: Select Label
Format: 7"


Limited edition excellent new single from early Creation signing the Loft, their first in over two decades

The Loft's double A-sided first new single since they reformed and in the 21 years since they orignally split in 1985 is a limited-to-500 copies only 7" vinyl which appears in a lovely coloured sleeve. One song, 'Model Village', is old, but has never been recorded, while the other 'Rickety Frame' is brand new. 'Model Village' features Darren Hayman of Hefner playing psychedelic keyboards. The whole track has a twang garage feel with a cool and slowly delivered vocal from singer Peter Astor. A slice of guitar heaven, it has riffs that jangle and sound very much like early 60's-style the Velvet Underground and which are then combined with a hot summer country influenced cool. 'Rickety Frame' has lovely arrangements between Dave Morgan's drumming and Bill Price's bass lines. The vocals feature Astor on classic form. The whole picture of this track is of a real band in a studio playing the track live, totally in control and with no overdubs.
