To my surprise The Shortwave Set played the 10 Days Off festival I was working for at that time. A pleasant surprise, although I thought they wouldn’t get a lot of new fans among the festival goers, because they were the odd one out. Good band, but not very much your typical 10 Days Off artist, if such a thing exists. Kudos to the man who was my boss at the time though, for having the balls to stick them on the festival line-up.
As expected, not a lot of people went to see them play that night, but those who did liked it a lot, was my impression. As I was working, I only heard two or three songs, but I liked what I heard. The A-side of this single is on their Danger Mouse-produced album Replica Sun Machine, the B-side, a cover of the brilliant Grace Jones track, is exclusive to this 45.
