The Mockers, Culprit and The King (1985)
It’s been a long, long time on the Vinyl Countdown since I mentioned Swear It’s True – a great record. I loved The Mockers as a kid, growing up, one of New Zealand’s great bands for me. And I’ve always returned to their catalogue – but you know I forgot that I owned this album. A trip to the shed to return some drums this past weekend…and I found a crate of records I’d stashed down there. Flicked through them, yep, not much…flick, flick, flick…and then “hang on!” This was the first one back to the house, back into the fold. A quick clean and back on the turntable. It plays just fine. In fact it sounds great. But then, it always did…they always did…I’m looking forward to Andrew Fagan’s summer tour.
Sample Track: Forever Tuesday Morning
