My Right Hand
Pete Astor is back (new album Spilt Milk out tomorrow). This song channels the later period Velvet Underground and is fucking ace. Lovely little guitar riff, drawled vocals.
From The Loft to The Weather Prophets to Ellis Island Sound to the Dead Trumpets solo album a few years ago, there's loads of good stuff in Pete's back pages- maybe nothing has ever quite topped this classic 80s indie single from The Weather Prophets.
There are two versions of Almost Prayed. This is the slightly longer one. And here it is done live on the Whistle Test in 1987, complete with leather trousers.
