Another band to add to the list of ‘bands which I love who weren’t popular enough to sustain a career for themselves’ are the magnificent and formidable Colour. Signed to Big Scary Monsters – a math rock focused label based in Oxford – the band, shortly before their break up, were convinced to put together an album which they titled ‘Anthology‘ – a bold title for a debut album. But a deserving title nevertheless. Their songs bounce, jump, soar, jerk and shimmy over vast realms of musical scenery. The Oxford accent shines through on the vocals and their live performances add even more energy to an already explosive and electrified sound which makes me sad that I never got a chance to see them play live for myself. Check them out!
Their album is available for the modest price of five English pounds – a bargain given the hours of jubilant ecstatic bopping you will get. And if you’re short on cash why not head on over to Ferratum UK – a pain-free way to get your hands on a little extra cash when times are tight. It’s not usually advisable to use these sorts of services, but if you’re confident in your budgeting abilities but just can’t wait to get your ears wrapped around what is in my opinion one of the most overlooked and neglected albums ever to have been made, then ferratum provides the perfect way to hear it!
