HFoS feature on Idle Race in Record Collector Magazine
Firstly, allow one to apologise for the lack of action upon this here bloggage in the past few months. Time is never the kindest of masters and, indeed, it has left Jeffman at a loss as to how he can keep the HFoS banner flying while he’s so busy with other writing projects.
The result being, he can’t. As such, Head Full of Snow will return in the Autumn with a promise of more of the same nonsense, plus a thoroughly good seeing to of that previously mentioned pile of Esoteric releases.
In the meantime, my fairweather friends, if you crave a HFoS fix, you could do worse than check out the latest Record Collector magazine (issue 404, August 2012), with my article on Brummie could’ve beens, psychedelic practitioners and stepping stones for Jeff Lynne, The Idle Race.
As we all know, there was much more to them than Jeff Lynne, so why not pitch a quid in and have a gander for yourself.
In the meantime, I shall leave you with one of the Idle Race’s finest post-Lynne songs, ‘Dancing Flower’. Until the autumn, my friends. Bless thee one and all.
All three of the Idle Race albums are collected in one handy volume, Back to the Story, available from Amazon.co.uk
