I just have to use this opportunity to announce that The Lotus Eaters are my new favourite band! Well, I suppose Roxy Music still beats them, but at the moment I just adore this band, which criminally is just an 80s obscurity.
I've had "The first picture of you" and "You don't need someone new" in my collection for a long time, and I suppose they were in the back of my mind when I picked up a 12" of the first this past summer. Since then it's been hard tracking down mp3s, but I've come at a point where I'm willing to put down 40€ for an LP of theirs, which is what they seem to go for at eBay! Or then maybe I'll just have to look for an ignorant shopkeeper who sells their albums from the 1€ bin

Enough rambling, see for yourself!
The First Picture Of You
German Girl
Love Still Flows
It Hurts
(only up for 7 days, apparently)

Things are going fine otherwise. Been a pretty buzy week with lots of extracurricular activities for work: a Teachers vs Parents sports event on Tuesday, with me amazingly coming second in running and equally amazing playing football, and an International Food Evening on Thursday, which was great fun as I got to dress up again and stuff my face with plenty of outlandish dishes, but exhausting too as it basically meant having to be social and outgoing from 8 in the morning till 8 in the evening

Thanks! I have 'The First Picture Of You' on some collection, so based on that, I always thought they were a bit "meh" and didn't bother to check them out more.

But "First picture" is my favorite! Guess these other samples haven't been able to change your mind then
