The Alphabetical Archive for 15 July 2012: Abecedarians

I’m going to try something new.  Every day, I’ll post a song recommendation from my record collection. We’ll go through the damn thing in alphabetical order until we reach “Z.”  If there’s sufficient interest, I’ll start again.

Abecedarians were an LA-based rock band who managed to get a deal with Tony Wilson’s Manchester-based Factory Records.  Although they were around for a dozen years, they only really cut through with this one track, a 12-inch single from the spring of 1985.
