Kew.Rhone, legendarily released on the same day as Never Mind the Bollocks - and I bought it that day too, eagerly awaited etc. being utterly dispirited by punk by that point, when The Fall were just getting their shit together before blowing us all away in 1979 with the astonishing Live at the Witch Trials, which, along with Unknown Pleasures, restored my faith in popular music. So Kew.Rhone in context, Autumn 1977, prog's last defiant stand, though we still had the Art Bears albums to come, and a couple of belters from National Health, and all that other RIO shit which is maybe best forgotten, though I still harbour affections for Univers Zero. All I remember of Kew.Rhone, however, is the Peel's Foe palindrome and John Greaves perfect delivery of What have I to do with Bradshaw's Windmill?. Can't have heard it in over 25 years...
If you've got a copy, you couldn't burn me one for tomorrow night could you?
