Black Francis with hair. Read the review and tell me you’re not jealous that you weren’t there.

And The Sugarcubes in the former Yugoslavia. Various rumours and reports that Einar’s off-key yelping at this gig was a major factor in the break up of the former Yugoslavia still persist to this day.

A prize for anyone that can tell me in the comments who or what the black butterfly was a teaser ad for.

Ride interview in Melody Maker, 22nd Sepember 1990

Ted Mico interviews Ride on the release of the Fall EP. Taken from Melody Maker, 22nd Sepember 1990. Photo by Kevin Westenberg.

Don’t know much about Ted Mico or what he’s doing now – can anyone help? I did find this at ZTT records which also has some scans from old Melody Makers. Not as good or as large as this site obviously – possibly because of the C word – but still interesting to browse if you ever liked any of the artists on ZTT.

I could gush about those first 3 Ride EP’s. I won’t.
This is my youth – tell me yours.
