The Groove Nashville

5CD set curated and compiled by The Darling Buds. Features 14 previously unreleased recordings!Plus early singles, three albums, B-sides, remixes and the 2017 'Evergreen' EP. With sleevenotes by Lois Wilson (MOJO, Record Collector) Formed in Caerleon, Wales, in 1986, The Darling Buds quickly found an enthusiastic hometown audience. Taking their cues from the C86 scene, The Beatles, '60s pop and the post-punk DIY scene, the band released their debut single the following year, followed by two singles on Sheffield's Native Records and a dream move to Epic, for whom they recorded three excellent albums drawing on the rich talents of singer Andrea Lewis and her songwriting partner Harley Farr. 'Killing For Love' navigates a chronological arc through a six-year career which saw the band lifted from the sheer delight of early airplay by John Peel to the heights of hit singles, world tours and success in the USA, and back again. Narrated by the band themselves, through new interview material and their own notes on each album and period of their careers, a story emerges of friends - young musicians out for a good time - and an enduring sound which is fondly remembered and highly regarded today. Packed with previously unheard recordings and photographs from the band's own private archive; and accompanied by an insightful scene setting essay from Lois Wilson, 'Killing For Love' brings together thirty years of friendship and songwriting.
