The Pale Fountains, caught by the river..

wanted to use these pics to accompany Teds piece, "The Magical World Of..." but only just found them.

I guess they are from their first press shoot, from, 1982. They really were a cool band. Early days, musically, it was via Love's take on Bacharach, a bit of Bossa and lyrics from the lineage of the English "kitchen sink" writers. The look, copped straight from a French, existential art film.

This album of their earliest material is worth a listen;

  • Longshot For Your Love
