I finally caught up with the latest instalment of John Carney’s peerless Shivers Inside series. Julia rightly hustled me along to get it on the site, and I am so pleased to see it up now. I remember Neal from Hellfire Sermons writing about the Kit record a few years ago, and of course John mentioned her again last year in his 50,000 Reasons series. I always meant to pick up her Bad Anorak 404 records, and this seems as good a spur as any, particularly given the synchronicity of listening to a lot of old Animals That Swim and Chris T-T recently. The link being of course that all have had records released on the Snowstorm label. That line about Lin being the missing link between Pauline Murray and Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares is spot on. And that bit about how he’d be camping on Lin’s doorstep and leaving flowers in old milk bottles, well yes, the spirit of obsessions, that’s what it’s all about.
