Song(s) of the Day # 2,316 Jetstream Pony

The eponymous album from Croydon / Brighton combo Jetstream Pony slots into an immediate and recognisable groove that you know instinctively it's never likely to stray from. Given that the band are made up of members who also have Wedding Present, Popguns, Trembling Blue Stars and other less well known but bands of similar stripe on their CVs, its hardly surprising. This is C-86 shambling, indie fare.

Thirty years and more away from this I find it difficuly to get really excited by stuff like this, unless it's reignited with genuine vim and fire like recent releases by En Attendant Ana and Strawberry Generation. That's not the case for the most part here but nevertheless it's all fairly pleasantly diverting for a single play, though I doubt I'll be coming back for more.
