Strawberry Switchblade – Sunday Morning


While it’s hard to post about Strawberry Switchblade without resorting to type and blathering about their magnificent one hit wonder ‘Since Yesterday’ I am going to persevere. The Glasgow duo of Rose McDowall and Jill Bryson may have disappeared by early 1986 but no 80’s retrospective would be complete without Bananarama’s darker and more interesting younger sisters. Their debut single ‘Trees and Flowers’ was an ode to Bryson’s agoraphobia (beats Robert De Niro I guess) and was produced by future KLF insaniac Bill Drummond. Also featured on the song was a budding songwriter by the name of Roddy Frame (Aztec Camera). ‘Sunday Morning’ (Velvets cover) appeared on the ‘Since Yesterday’ 12-inch (not porn related kids) as a direct antidote to its lavishly designed a-side. While it lags in the comet trail of the original it is still a fragile piece of dream pop (they are the true predecessors of that scene) and not even the vinyl blemishes can disguise those wonderful voices.

    How heartbroken I am to find that I missed the mp3 of “Sunday Morning!” I love that track, and have wished for it in mp3 format for years now… but alas, all I have is crackly vinyl (and no means to play it).Is there any way of being notified if it–by chance–is posted again?Thanks Inordinate Amounts,clintcatalyst at g mail dot com

    MERRICK…

    Holy effing shit!

    It may have taken over a year for your response to ‘ricochet back’ to me, but I’m grateful all the same:

    Just downloaded it, and greatly anticipate perusing all the other treasures at that URL…

    ASTOUNDING.

    It’s pushing 3 a.m., and I’m not exactly the most articulate person at the moment. Still, just had to let you know how appreciative I am!

    THANK YOU;
    THANK YOU;
    THANKS AGAIN!
