Out with the New In with the Old

Happy first day of Fall.

It would be easy enough to dig up an ancient Fall video to welcome the arrival of the official first day of Autumn but alas I will not.

Thirst released one EP on Ebony Music / Rough Trade in 1987 called Riding the Times. The band featured Martin Bramah (of the Blue Orchids who also featured a Fall member Una) and Karl Burns, both ex patriots of the band the Fall.

Thirst does not mirror the Fall musically to a large degree - in fact they sound like many of the late 80s commercial brooding mid tempo UK pop bands with a touch of the 70s Modern Lovers thrown in.

I don't love this record but I am fond of the title track which you can listen to here. For you Fall collectors this record isn't a super easy find but when you do - it should be affordable- somewhere between $5 and $10.
