Good Morning Mr. Presley
Well here's probably my last post for this year.
The 'Good Morning Mr. Presley' LP was released on Grunt Grunt A Go Go in 1985 (I think). It's a record that is not easy to find these days. It's like a cross section of UK indie bands from that period. Most bands appeared on labels like Abstract, Backs and In Tape. Some of the bands ring a bell like The Bomb Party, Marc Riley, Microdisney but there seems to be a few bands that only appear here as far as I know.
The record contains 2 live tracks: the one of Five Go Down To The Sea ? and one of The Botha Boys, who are no one else than The Three Johns off course.
Every compilation is a bit of a hit-or-miss so it's up to you which tracks you favour.
The Grunt Grunt A Go Go label only released 2 albums: this one and the 'It's My Dog, Maestro' LP of Eton Crop (Dutch band and friends of The Three Johns).
