I'm Five Years Ahead of My Time

This track came into my head when I was rooting through wine boxes full of tapes at the weekend. I have found a new sort of toleration of the tape recently after having to purchase the latest Thousand Foot Whale Claw album that for some perverse reason has only been made available on this format. My idea was to find the fabled garage rock/ psych tape that I have mentioned before, rip it and post it in it's entirety but alas it could not be located. So I did the next best thing I dug out some of the tracks that I remembered from it  and more and had a perfectly good hour or two grooving to late 60s music instead of listening Radio Scotland's ridiculous over the top coverage of a football match between one Glasgow team in green & white and the other in "royal" blue. I know who is living in the past and it ain't me babe.

I know SA posted this a while back but I think that it is worth a regular airing.

Quite right Drew, this should be compulsory listening at least once per week. Stirring stuff. The Nomads' cover is pretty wonderful too.

Great song, Drew. Why is it that although it's of its time that doesn't put you off, unlike so many songs of the 80s and that synthy-sound?

It is a top , top tune.
