The Lucksmiths Spring a Leek

My Singles Collection, vol. 13

The Lucksmiths Spring a LeekThere’s a bit more info about the new Lucksmiths record, which is a compilation of non-album tracks that will fill the holes in your Lucksmiths collection.  It contains no less than 45 songs and totally raids the vaults.  It has everything  including the kitchen sink on it, check out the track list over at their new Australian label, Lost and Lonesome.  There are tracks from out of print 7″ singles, excellent cover songs, some unreleased stuff, radio sessions, remixes…my god what doesn’t it have?  Here are a couple songs that will be making their first appearance on cd.  These were ripped from my 7″ collection, so the sound is a bit crackly but I like to think that it was the way they were meant to be heard.  They both are from the Macintyre 7″ that was limited to 500 copies and was a co-release by Candle Records and Thirsty Arab Records back in 1996.  Are Are You Having A Good Time?!?!  is a riot of a song that you have to check out, and I bet will make you want to buy this double cd! Both songs will be on Spring A Leak which is out in September on Lost & Lonesome in Australia and Matinee in the US.
