The Snapdragons - Our Tune

The Snapdragons were also active in the late 80s and early 90s. They were English and this song was about the "Our Tune" feature on daytime Radio 1 (I think by Simon Mayo). It was the first song on my Alternative Classics Vol. 3 and...

it goes like this

The rest of the songs were as follows:

The Wedding Present - Don't Talk, Just Kiss
The Becketts - The Most Beautiful Girl in Town
Mega City Four - Awkward Kid
The Telescopes - To Kill a Slow Girl Walking
The Blake Babies - Cess Pool
Lush - De-luxe
The Charlatans - Indian Rope
Snuff - Bran Flakes/ Shake 'n' Vac
The Breeders - Iris
The Family Cat - From the City to the Sea
Galaxie 500 - Blue Thunder
The Fall - Telephone Thing
Ultra Vivid Scene - The Mercy Seat

As in the previous post, I'll include some of the other rare songs at a later date.

Hey, OT! Thanks for starting this up. It's a nice job you're doing here, so don't let the lack of comments put you off. I get hardly any on mine either, and there's a lot of good blogs out there that get next to none. It's the way people are, I suppose. If they've nothing to add but thanks, a lot of people don't tend to bother commenting. Although if there's something they think they can help you with, they're more likely to post then.

To prove my own point, I believe I can tell you that it was Simon Bates, not Mayo, who did the 'Our Tune' spot.

Anyway, good luck, and I hope you stick with it!

Thanks for your feedback. Yeah, I know comments are hard to come by anyway but this is pretty new so I don't mind waiting. Thanks for the correction about the DJ. I remember that to be the case now!
