Blam Blam Blam, Untitled Tour EP (2019)
A reissue/replication of the band’s early work – the classic songs – put together for the recent tour which was brilliant. I was too young to catch Blam Blam Blam the first time, but I wasn’t going to miss them on this reunion and it was brilliant. Three players (still) at the peak of their powers – so very good. I also got to speak to Don McGlashan that same day for my podcast which was a real treat; my first time ever meeting or chatting with him and he was, predictably, a scholar and a gent. This EP features replica inner sleeve notes and ephemera and though there were more good songs by this band than just the four on offer here there’s something about an EP that cuts to the essence. This one certainly does. I should really have waited around to get it signed by the band – but everyone had that idea that night, so I just cut and run.
