A brilliant version of the best ever Qotsa song btw so that's my vote.

One Armed Scissor seems too obvious of a choice so voted Lauren

Shout out to Brassy. They woulda probably been Lucious Jax famous if this album came out like four years earlier

'One Armed Scissor' is not only the obvious choice, it's the correct choice.

I don't remember this magazine cover at all, fwiw, but then I never really read Melody Maker, so...

Happily MM went down the toilet a few months after that pos cover.

Chances are, if I had seen the cover at the time, I probably would have laughed my tits off - a Craig David fan I was not - but then I wouldn't have been much of a fan of much that's actually on this compilation either.

anyone recall the Lauren Laverne track? i forgot she actually went solo at one point.

Don't Falter is a great single

Brassy were already a great group in 1995

King Adora are absolutely the worst band I've seen more than three times by accident. Or is that Subcircus? Really can't remember which one is which.
