Autumn Parade are a band I’ve loved since the 90s, but have always been a big mystery to me. They have that Manchester/Creation Records sound falling somewhere between early Primal Scream and The Stone Roses (or maybe The La’s and The Lightning Seeds? The singer totally reminds me of someone, but I can’t place it). Their only output (that I know of) was two songs on a Beachwood comp cd/lp called “Expo 1″ in 1992. Songs are credited to (John) Hamlin… and that’s all I know.
A few years ago I got in the habit of making my own “fake” releases for my iTunes library. Mainly for bands that never had proper records come out. The artwork you see above is from that, my own “Julia Blue EP”. So I thought I’d share these songs in this format and we can pretend that this is one fantastic 12″ release.
So now questions…
The two tracks from above are available there plus two other unreleased songs, “Phased” and “Skylight.” Both are excellent!! Their myspace page also answers my two questions. Pity their LP “Indian Summer” was never released.
p.s. Those interested in tracking down the “Expo 1″ comp, more info can be found here!
