Phonefreak Honey

Sweet Jesus
1992

It sounds like a collision of My Bloody Valentine and T. Rex, all wall-of-sound guitars, introspective vocals and pretty tunes. "Na-na-na-na naa naa" indeed ... they don't write lyrics like that any more.

This was single of the week in Melody Maker or NME sometime in the early nineties - and in the remainder bins a few weeks later, probably. Which is where I found it. Best 50p I ever spent. The fact that almost nobody appears to have heard of Sweet Jesus, let alone actually heard this song just makes me love it more. Loads of anorak points, surely?
