THE NIVENS-shake it from the top

Reaching out from Norfolk UK, and with roots stemming from '85, this cut from danceteria records circa 1988-89 was from the album shake. i can't quite categorize them as indie rock all together because of the influenced "groovy sensibilites" of the 60's mixed in there (as for most of their songs anyway). i like this one, reason being that it is mild and harmoniuos, easy for listening on the way to a friends house....say to play ping pong or somethin'.

9 WAYS TO SUNDAY-midnight train

This U.S. band released their only cd back in 1990, with lack of promotion and radio play, they never got the break they can almost certainly share with the likes of ocean blue. similarly likened to the latter, their music displays heavy ladened guitars and synth, influenced by '80's english pop and jangly bands. my friend michael sutton gave a review of the band and their music in this link: http://www.answers.com/topic/9-ways-to-sunday i posted the song midnight train to give you an example of their playing style and to kinda honor american bands that can throw at you the music that we most greatly appreciate.

i want it now
