To give you an indication of its ascent towards pensioner status ‘Black Car’ was originally released on vinyl EP. Yep those black roundy things were capable of holding more than 2 songs when played at 45 RPM, in this case Black Tambourine managed to squeeze 4 numbers onto their ‘By Tomorrow’ 7-inch. Signed to the still functioning Slumberland Records Black Tambourine were a product of the times they found themselves in, namely they were acutely adept at producing vast chasms of blazing guitars topped with dreamy female vocals (in this case Pam Berry’s). You’ll hear the Jesus & Mary Chain and the Pale Saints coursing through it veins. Black Tambourine were but a fleeting object of desire as they only officially released 9 songs, played only a handful of gigs and dissipated after 2 short years of breathless creativity. KD
