Long lost Brit power-poppers THE FAVOURITES have just released a brilliant new retrospective anthology, and we have five copies to give away!
They're also launching a video for the track 'Favourite Shoes' exclusively with Vive Le Rock!
'Favourite Shoes' was originally released on the B-side of the Nottingham band's debut single, a punked-up cover of ABBA's 'SOS'. With no existing TV or video footage available, the video was created by Martin James Gee with prompts from band members Darryl Hunt and Duncan Kerr.
The Favourites were formed in 1977 by members of Stiff-signed pub rockers PLUMMET AIRLINES and THE GTs, whose sole recorded appearance was on the fabled Raw Records compilation, Raw Deal. Earning support slots with the likes of THE ONLY ONES and SQUEEZE, they released one further single - a cover of THE WASPS' 'Angelica' - before splitting.
The album New Feeling, which was released in September through Reckless Records and received a glowing review in the latest edition of Vive Le Rock, features both singles plus B-sides and 10 other recently unearthed recordings, digitally remastered by Sean Read from DEXYS.
And we have 5 copies of New Feeling to give away!!! Each LP contains a CD of the album, but there's more! One lucky winner will also receive a mint unplayed copy of the now rare and valuable original 'Angelica' single!!!
To be in with a chance of winning, just send an email to email@example.com with 'FAVOURITES COMP' in the subject box by Wednesday 29 November, telling us the answer to this simple question:
Favourites frontman Darryl Hunt went on to play bass in which major band? Good luck!
New Feeling is available to buy online here, or directly from Reckless Records, 30 Berwick Street, London.
