I feel a little bit embaressed when posting UK punk/powerpop ’cause my knowledge is nothing compared to Steves over at the Low Down Kids blog. So I just whish I had Steve writing this instead. The Media is a recent discovery for me and this puppy has two great tracks and two really sucky ones. Dizzy at Detour Records have a page about the band: The Media.
Don’t Sit Back
Rose And Crown
No embarrassment necessary, cos posting this stuff is doing a good job!
The Media had a second single, mostly thought of as a mod thing, but the band bloke wot I spoke with says it was a joke and that they were in no way mods or even mod-ish. Good record though!
Too poppy for me but FYI a copy of this is for sale on ebay right now.
I found this for a couple of quid years ago, but had to sell it – I seem to remember “Rose And Crown” was actually a great track, but maybe memory deceives me? Can you post so I can check it out? Nice one!
Time for a repost of this one. Thanks for reminding me.
The Low Down Kids blog recently posted the track “Rose and Crown” from this EP but I am still missing one track- “Don’t Sit Back”. No matter how crummy it may be I am curious to hear it- please find it in your heart to repost it! Thanks.
Hey Tony! Good choice. IÂ´ll repost this as soon as I fine the time :).
Thanks, much appreciated!
