55 From 55 - 1985

55 songs in 55 days - one for every year of my far.

A momentous change in my life lay just over the horizon, but for now, from 1985, here's another twofer. The Moffs were an Australian band, heavily inspired by all things paisley and psychedelic. The catalogue they left behind was slim, though if you can only track down one piece of plastic by them, make it this one. It's an import 7" single on Citadel, 'Another Day in the Sun', coupled with 'Clarodomineaux'. I can't separate the two songs. Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream.

Never heard the other side two Another Day In The Sun,it was bit Triffid-like, which is no bad thing.

Jesus Christ, Swede: all those years I never knew you had a blog!!! And what a wonderful enjoyable one it is, to be sure! Just read all of the 55- posts and will continue with the rest (and downloading some of this fabulous stuff you offer) this evening when I get home!

Finding this site made my day ... naah, my month!!!!

I never heard the Moffs before George's post yesterday. Catching up quickly. Not sure how I missed them all of this time. Have really liked what I have heard. Looks like you got a new fan today. Doesn't that feel great?

Ha! I'm in the same boat as Dirk. Have just discovered you have a blog and been scrolling through your wonderful back pages.

George. The Triffids are one of my all-time favourite bands, so your comparison is definitely no bad thing.

Dirk and Swiss Adam. Blimey! Thank you for those kind words. I'm glad you're finding something to enjoy among my ramblings.

Brian. The Moffs released other fine records, but this was *the* one for me.
