listening to the nightingales while cleaning up

This is an old favourite.
I knew nothing about the Nightingales as a teenager but got into them starting with a 12" ep that I bought for a dollar or something entirely on spec I think because it had an elephant on the front. I immediately recognised them as my kind of band. Bought all their records most of which were available massively cheap because no-one else wanted them (another indicator they were mkob). Still play and love 'em.

I had almost the same experience with The Nightingales. I bought Use Your Loaf from a bargain bin due to that horsey cover. I miss those el cheapo vinyl bins full of records by Essential Logic, Associates, Monochrome Set, The Pastels etc...
