Your friends and mine, The Strange Idols, are to release a new retrospective CD album on Cloudberry Records.
Due out on the 25th, the CD will feature all the singles and b-sides released by the group during the three or four years they were active in London before they split up about five years ago, plus a few bonus rarities, all lovingly remastered for this special edition release. Shoegazing fans will no doubt be interested to note that Neil Halstead of Slowdive fame recorded and produced several of the tracks of the records.
There's a tremendously extensive interview with all the members of the band over at the Cloudberry website. But in the meantime, this seems like an ideal time to dredge up the remix I did of their song 'She's gonna let you down again' which you can download below.
