No. 2 The Adult Net - Edie
The second single from The Adult Net, Edie must surely rank as their finest moment. It starts out all Spector-esque before mutating into a thick slice of wah-wah driven psych-pop. Rather lovely. The b-side, I Get Around, sounds, unsurprisingly, an awful lot like The Fall circa 1985, thanks to the presence of Karl Burns and Simon Rogers. The provenance of this single is lost to me; probably a Plymouth second-hand shop in the mid-80s. I love the Edie Sedgewick inspired sleeve photo and the Beggars Banquet paper centre.
