CHARITY SHOP CLASSICS (22)

Another from the charity shop rumage. This time indie middle-rankers Echobelly, remixed by the UK’s Detroit Techno don Dave Angel.

 

Echobelly were Andy Henderson, drums; Glenn Johansson, guitar; Alex Keyser, bass guitar; Sonya Aurora Madan, vocals; Debbie Smith, guitar. Led by vocalist Sonya Aurora Madan, Echobelly fused the ironic, self-absorbed viewpoint of the Smiths with stylish Blondie posturing and a solid guitar crunch. Defiantly politically correct, the group cultivated a fair amount of praise within the British press at the beginning of their career in the early 1990s, but as the Brit-pop craze of the mid-’90s wore on, the group was slowly eclipsed by such contemporaries as Elastica and Sleeper and as indie went laddish. Nevertheless, Echobelly earned a dedicated cult following in the U.S. and U.K., as well as a devoted fan base within Japan.

 

From the 1997 single “Here Comes The Big Rush”, two remixes by Dave Angel. The mix with the vocal is less successful
