It's Not So Grim Up North



I absolutely loved this record until some twat named Dario G decided to sample it in a third rate sub rave piece of pish and totally ruined it for me.

That was until yesterday when it popped up on the iPod and I felt that sort of warm, fuzzy feeling that I used to feel when I heard it. Never got into anything else by the band.

Can't for the life of me recall anything else the band ever did, apart from a pretty pointlesss instrumental version of Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want This Time which was used in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

"It's Not So Grim Up North" Don't be ridiculous. Of course it it. I know. I went there once.

Good post Drew. It's not that grim up here. We've got the Trafford Centre and everything.

Swiss Adam - lest we forget that ray of sunshine and northern wit that is mark Edward Smith.

Part of the wonderful British pastoral pop tradition...there is a sort of magical Brian Wilson feel to this song as well!
