I sometimes wonder if people in bands that have long since broken up, their music pretty much out of print, if they ever troll the Internet to see if their music is “out there,” you know; waiting to be downloaded … and if they can’t find themselves, how do you think that makes them feel?
Which brings me to today’s obscure music entry: The Julies, who in 1998 released the ep “Lovelife.” Oh, sure, you can listen to their music and read their description on myspace OR, you can go to this website and see the same description and a broken link to an mp3. But, alas … no downloads.
Which is kind of a shame, because the album is pretty solid. I picked this up for one reason when this was released. It was produced and engineered by one William Campbell, who fronted an outstanding and largely unknown band (at least to my circle of friends), The Throes. (I must get around to writing about them sometime …)
PLUS, this album has one of the cutest retro-70s cover illustrations ever. And you can quote me on that.
Anyway, that’s The Julies. Anyone remember this band? Let me know …
