As you are reading this, I will be on my way home from Birmingham after being at the beck and call of some very important colonial cousins. It will have been a very intense and tiring week. I will need something to cheer me up on the long drive up the road.
So carrying on with the celebrations of all things Boys Own. Here is a track which although not on the Boys Own or JBO labels is closely associated with the collective and on possibly, the most consistent of the indie labels of the early nineties, Heavenly.
Let’s Kiss And Make Up as most will already be aware was originally recorded by the Field Mice, which is a great single in it’s own right. The Saint Etienne version turns the track into an indie dance track. The Pete Heller Midsummer Madness mix is a loved up, blissed out anthem to all things Balearic.
I loved all the Balearic stuff and the experimentation which went on, however sometimes it did go a bit far, Mandy Smith, what the fuck was that all about, the E’s weren’t that good.
I love this track, it makes me smile and is just what I need.
