CHARLOTTES, THE - THINGS COME APART LP

CHARLOTTES, THE - THINGS COME APART LP

£7.70

Limited to 500 numbered GREEN coloured vinyl copies and presented in a gatefold sleeve

Includes 2 bonus tracks

2nd album from this long forgotten, vastly under-rated band from the late 80’s/early 90’s that fewatures Simon Scott on drums, who went on to join Slowdive

Positioning themselves squarely in the shoegazing scene of the time they were however a much noisier proposition but still managed to retain a very catchy edge to their music.

Pioneering in their use of walls of guitar sound, The Charlottes were one of the first shoegaze bands beaten to the punch only by My Bloody Valentine and quite possibly Lush. Leading the way for the likes of Ride and Chapterhouse.

Despite their independent chart success they fell very much into the category of ‘ones who got away’, the band splitting just as the single Liar (Included on this album) was gaining extensive college radio play in the USA.

The whole album is drenched in walls of guitars Still great 20 years after its release and essential for lovers of My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, and Ride

Unavailable on vinyl for many years, this reissue includes 2 bonus tracks blue & venus.
