One of my favourite bands from the late 80s/early 90s – The Darling Buds – regrouped a few years ago to play a few gigs and – shock! horror! – write and record some new material too.
I managed to catch the band in their van outside the Soundhouse in Leicester, where they spoke about how the new EP is progressing, their limited life on the road and also chatted about their favourite songs of the year.
The show itself was as fantastic as ever – a whole outing for debut album Pop Said, along with three new tracks, including the already-excellent “Guess The Good Parts” and a part-Motowny, part-indiepop outing which might be called “Get Over Yourself”.
You can keep an eye on the band’s official Facebook page to find out when the new stuff is hitting the shops.
