Citizen Fish/AOS3 - Split 7" (1993, Bluurgh Records, Fish 29)
As the more regular visitors to this blog may have noticed, the posts have been a bit less frequent over the past few weeks. This is mainly because we've been busy preparing for THE BIG MOVE - which mainly involves lots of alcohol-fuelled, teary farewells, eating as much curry as we can and going through every one of your possessions piece by piece deciding what to do with them (except, of course, for the records. They're all going with us).
I'm planning to start posting again when we reach our destination, get a house and broadband etc, but until then I'll leave you with this rather splendid little split 7".
T.V. Dinner is your standard Fish fare, but Half Way There is kind of like Citizen Fish put in a blender with the More Specials album, and I kind of hoped at the time that this would signal their new direction. It didn't.
Anybody who went to a festival in the '90s will have come across Sunderland's AOS3. I don't believe Conspiracy was available other than on this single. I was planning to up it a couple of weeks back for the summer solstice, what with it being a jolly slice of insanely positive, crusty, hippy, festivally reggae, like, but alas, I didn't get round to it. You can bag all three tracks here.
See you anon.
