Three of a Kind #46

Three songs from the second volume in the Indie Top 20 series today. Twenty tracks spread across two shiny vinyl LPs. Despite the fact that the release date of this album would have been 1987, I never actually got around to buying it until about eight years later, from a stall in Clacton covered market. Better late than never, though, eh? Here's the full track listing:

1. Crazyhead: What Gives You The Idea That You're So Amazing Baby? 2:38
2. Pop Will Eat Itself: Love Missle FI-II 2:44

2. The Flatmates: Happy All The Time 2:14
3. The Pastels: Crawl Babies 3:15
4. The Soup Dragons: Head Gone Astray 3:40
5. Mighty Mighty: Built Like A Car 2:07

Side 3
1. The Beatmasters featuring the Cookie Crew: Rok Da House 3:50
2. The Beloved: Forever Dancing 3:38
3. The Chesterfields: Ask Johnny Dee 2:53

3. Blue Aeroplanes: Tolerance 2:44
4. The Brilliant Corners: Brian Rix 2:51
5. Talulah Gosh: Talulah Gosh 3:19

But which three to choose for today's selection? Ooh... these I think!

Oooh, I bought one of those Indie Top 20 wotsits on cassette in my formative jangly indie years - It had 'Completely and Utterly' on it by The Chesterfields I believe. Or maybe it didn't and I am just making that up. My memory isn't what it was you know. I'll have to dig around the garage now and satisfy my curiosity godammit.
