The Sleepers – Angel In A Raincoat E.P. 7″

Here’s a 7″ that kept haunting me for quite some time before I finally got it in a trade with my good friend Laszlo. Before that I won a copy on ebay that got lost in the mail, bought  a copy on discogs where the seller changed his mind and cancelled the order, a friend found it at Utrecht that I thought was too expencive as well as I got outbid a few times. Probably took 5 years from the first time I heard it til I landed it all in all. And the title track is still one of the greatest pop-punk/ melodic punk/ powerpop moments that never got the attention it deserved when it was released. The other 3 songs are super solid pop blasts as well.
500 copies in total and increasing in price all the time, but thankfully Queen Mum did a reissue of it in a nice sleeve with a little info etc earlier this year.

    Holy hell. “Angel in a Raincoat” is top — and should have been Top of the Pops. Instead it was completely lost in the flood of great DIY releases burbling up month after glorious month. How can I have never heard this before? I love that I will never get to the bottom of the rich resultant alluvial plain.

    Thank you, Martin!

    By the way, this is incorrectly posted in “1977.”
