Straight out of Cambridge in 1987, The Poppyheads released a brilliant one off single on the Sarah Record imprint, one of the records that still has indiepop collectors scrambling to this day. There was a flexi disc before that and I’ve read of a demo tape that circulated on mailing lists – I’ve yet to hear either. The one single was enough to endear them and it’s a prized possession in my 7″collection. There will be more Sarah releases to share in the coming weeks. As well, one of my favourite releases of 2019, Purple Mountains offset by the brilliance of Lou Reed plus Lost Film, Hit The Jackpot and Gaarden.
