What could be a better follow up to Teenage Head than the Head?And is it even possible that a song with a title like Nothing to do in a town like Leatherhead could be bad? Probaly not as it’s such quality in the title alone. Then you add UK and the magnificent year 1979 and on Ellie Jay records and you know it will be super great!

A few years ago Detour got the boys back into the studio to record a few tracks, and they actually did a superb job. I usually avoid “new” records by old bands, the these guys manage to sound like it was no more that 2 months between the recordings. Sound, songs and instrumental skills was more or less at the exact same level! So pick that one up, and the comp LP with their complete recordings from 79-80 as it’s a very solid release. They had nothing but good songs, believe it or not.

Thought I posted this a long time ago. Well here it was in the posting queue. I’m pretty absent at the moment. Got stuck in a loop recording music which feels a bit more rewarding than posting music at the moment. I’ll be here on and off until I got some more inspiration. Martin will keep it up until then.
