    Recorded very cheaply, it was a very Lo-Fi affair.
    The record sold out quickly and was repressed in January 1987, mainly due to airplay via John Peel and Janice Long on BBC Radio.
    It was the sound of a band learning how to play.
    Rehearsal Tapes Included as bonus tracks!

about

The Groove Farm Bristol, UK

Formed in 1986, inspired by 60's garage bands Punk, and DIY guitar bands. Early days seen as 'twee' due to their uncomplicated pop songs, soon found themselves part of the thriving 'Indie-pop-C86' scene. The 'twee' tag didn't last for long, by late 87 the Lo-Fi- Garage Pop style emerged.
Released records for Subway Organization, and Raving Pop Blast!
Now back in 2017 with new songs on the way!

Track Name: Heaven Is Blue
HEAVEN IS BLUE
(Jarrett / Kent)

Looking out the window
Waiting for something to happen
You want to cut the rope
But the scissors are broken

You want to break free
Want to run with the masses
This flaming desire
Is burning hotter than matches

And what would you do if you found out
that heaven is blue?

You're watching people run around
with nothing to do
You said "Don't wanna be like that, if that isn't too cruel"
You want a heaven on earth
And that's just the start
And we've got sore heads and happy hearts
And what would you do if you found out that
heaven is blue?

Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba

Track Name: It Always Rains On Sunday
IT ALWAYS RAINS ON SUNDAY
(Jarrett / Kent)

I'll meet you if you want me to
But it always rains on Sundays
We can walk along the empty streets
Because it always rains on Sundays

And I don't mind
If the sun never shines
And it never does anyway....

You tell me that there must be more
But what more could I say?
And when I turned around...
You had walked away

And I don't care
If life is never fair...
And it never is fair anyway....

Ba Da Da, Ba Ba Ba Da Da Da Da...
I'll meet you if you want me to
But it always rains on Sundays
We can walk along the empty streets
'Cause it always rains on Sundays

Track Name: My Feet Keep Slipping
MY FEET KEEP SLIPPING
(Jarrett / Kent)

Painting myself different colours
Blue or green for the mood I'm in
Watching you jumping fences
Don't you ever try jumping higher?
You make things so easy that you can't fall
Flat on your face
Keep your back to the wall
I'm watching people lie to each other
It's so stupid it makes my skin crawl

My feet keep slipping off the ground

Forsaking all I own
Feel menaced
For dancing on my own.
Embarrassed
I've never had no one
You see, I'm on my own
But I don't care because I'm having fun
And is your life really so good
And are you really so cool
And does the one you love really love you
Or is it just
An illusion.
You think you're living
Well I know
You're dead.
