The Mark Viduka match 4/11/2000
A ridiculously early kick-off, but what a thriller! After conceding two early goals Leeds came back to win 4-3 and all 4 goals were scored by Mark Viduka….
RANDOM TRACK OF THE DAY
Carved To A Noise - Paper Bags
This is the only track from “You, the mouth and the music” that I managed to find on YouTube….
You, the mouth and the music (1983)
“You, the mouth and the music” is a cassette compilation that was released by Very Mouth Records & Tapes in 1983.
I ordered the tape directly from Very Mouth after reading about it in So What! fanzine (issue #4) and for the price of a 12” single I got an hour-long selection of post-punk, synth pop, jangly guitars and abstract electronica by various bands I’d never heard of, plus a booklet, a sticker and a badge.
None of the artists featured on “You, the mouth and the music” were particularly brilliant, neither did they go on to become commercially successful (just like the Very Mouth organisation itself) - but I don’t think that was the point. They were doing what they wanted to do at the time and when they got bored with it I presume they moved on in whatever direction they wanted to take their lives. And they left behind a nice little example of the flourishing independent cassette scene that existed in the 1980s, which still sounds OK today….
