Diesel PowerPop

Here's some obscure 80s jangle from Brit powerpoppers Diesel Park West from their first LP Shakespeare Alabama, released in 1989. All the Myths on Sunday features some tasty psych guitar work and an anthemic chorus. This disc was a perrenial budget bin item here in the States, but it's actually quite excellent, so keep an eye out for it.

KC --

Once again you're reading my mind. I've been meaning to post this song since forever.

Their finest moment, however, is an astonishing Moby Grape-ish version of Skip Spence's "All Come to See Her Now" on the "More Oar" tribute album.

What a great band...

And they're involved in some capacity with the soundtrack to the Todd Haynes Dylan movie.

Damn...where's my copy?

Wow! Really? I know they were still kicking around, but I didn't know they were involved with such a high profile project.

They remind me a little of High Llamas somehow. That would be a nice double bill.
