I don't want to join your revolution, so leave me alone...

A serendipitous Bandcamp find, this is the archly titled The Record Player and the Damage Done by The Reds, Pinks and Purples, aka Glenn Donaldson. This and the whole parent album Uncommon Weather are quite listenable. I will explore further. He certainly has a way with a melody, and a natty line in Morrissey-esque song titles (I Hope I Never Fall In Love, A Kick in the Face (That's Life), I Wouldn't Die For Anyone, that kind of thing).

    Love this,reminds me so much of another band but I cant put my finger on who. I'll get back to you when it comes to me,undoubtedly at 3am!!!

    1. Proof that great minds think alike, mate.

    2. Have been thinking more what it might remind of. Musically, if not vocally, it makes me think of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions a bit, something like Rattlesnakes.

    3. Aha! I think there's something of our old jukebox favourite and former Clandestine Classic, If I Can't Change Your Mind by Sugar about this too.
