The Poors Of Reign - Cherish/Ordinary 7"


Very first release of this Manchester postpunk/indie band.
Can't find a lot of info on the net. Seems that they were active until the early 90's with other records released that I never heard (as Poors Of Reign). This includes the 'Plenty' mini-album, 'Soundtrack Of The Film' 12", 'Weird Scenes Inside The Cyprus' 12" and the 'Wrecked' LP.
I like this one 'cos it has a bit of Echo & The Bunnymen in the sound.
Chris Yates (trumpet & vocals) is now a painter and part of the Stuckist movement. He also did the cover artwork of all their records (except this one I guess).

Hi there! How you doing?
I've been following your brilliant blog for quite some time now and was wondering, as last resource, if you, by any chance, have any recordings by Rain Culture, which appear on the b-side of "La Cassette Froide", a tape that also sees tracks by Little Nemo on the a-side. Actually, I'm looking precisely for those tracks but any other available would be appreciated.
Thank you so much for your attention and trouble.
Best regards

Sorry can't help you with Rain Culture. Maybe try Dreams And Voices as this blog is more specialised in French stuff than me.
Thanks for the appreciation.

I guess I'm not the only one, but I totally love your blog.

This is refering to a pretty old post, but I wanted to know if you've ever found any pictures of The Children's Hour? Ever since you posted about them I can't stop listening, they're great.

Thanks for all the great tunes!
Cheers!

Good luck Voces Distantes!
Roman Empire, thanks for the comment. It's been awhile.
Wm, I think that you can find sleeve images on discogs and/or rateyourmusic. Children's Hour was a fine discovery for myself too.
